Nothing I write ever feels finished, but I’m gonna share it anyway:

when evil sits upon the gate
who are we to question fate
destiny is standing by
ready with his gang of hate

what are we to do today
what is work and what is play
who are you and who am I
as we dive into the fray

in letting go and being free
reason weak will always be
feeling power lies within
without which we cannot see

ways of happiness and truth
must be chosen without proof
mind will seek to ratify
rational it sits aloof

we are makers of the art
knowing now as at the start
to find the ways we must allow
and watch the compass of the heart
