Flight of the Butterflies

There’s something that’s burning,
deep down inside.
You cannot quench this fire,
no matter the tide.
Here I stand,
and here I declare.
It has begun,
take a moment to stare.
At the beautiful transformation,
as it starts.
First the transfusion,
next a few sparks.
A fleck of motion,
a fleck of retraction.
A sensible notion,
adeptness at refraction.
A wit to bend,
a will to mend.
Muscles to rend,
messages to send.
The cocoon cracks,
slightly,
then the creature inside attacks,
lightly,
picking,
shifting,
stretching.
WINGS BREAK FREE!
Fly away,
as far as I see.
Never return here,
this land filled with darkness,
hate,
and fear.
Stay high,
with the birds in the sky.
Fly on to the moon,
kiss it for the rest of us,
tell it we will see it soon.
Dance among the stars,
ancient watchers they be,
learn from them,
see what they see.
Follow me,
till we finally break free.
We can make it,
look into my eyes.
Know we can,
take my hand,
together we stand,
someday to fly,
away in the blink of an eye.
We shall leave it all behind,
and God only knows what we may find.

Echo Returned

The stereo,
it tells the story my young mind,
cannot comprehend.
My head,
it bobs to the sound,
of guitar, drums, bass and voice.
All leading,
all telling of,
tragic lessons,
learned in time.
Learned I have,
weathered,
joints sore,
oh I have learned.
I have dug,
deeper,
wider,
to find this feeling.
Searched for so long,
head hung low,
searching every small crack I would walk over.
One day,
I happened a glance at the sky,
and found the sun.
Brightening,
warming,
saving my winter cold and gloom.
I often wonder,
does the sun behold me?
Does it know,
can it see?
Not yet,
but the day is coming,
when I shall shine brighter than the sun,
and become greater than it,
and it shall behold me,
and it shall know me,
and it shall worship me.
For I am everything.
I am everywhere.
I am eternal.
I am a healer.
I am a teacher.
I AM LOVE!
Incarnate.
I have traversed the desert of fear.
I have swam the ocean of loss.
I have battled the armies of hate.
HERE I STAND!
Perfect and as pure,
as ever.
Drink of me.
Know peace.
Know calm.
Know comfort.
Know warmth.
KNOW LOVE!
KNOW LIGHT!
Then when you have felt me,
clutch me to your chest,
and never let go.
Hold me,
more valuable,
than all the wealth in the world.
Let me soothe you.
Let me heal you.
LET ME SAVE YOU!
This world has missed me.
I see the scowls.
I hear the tears.
I feel the loss.
Stop fighting me.
Stop denying me.
Drown in my ocean.
Give yourself to me.
Give yourself to your heart.
Give in to its whisperings.
I beg,
please give in to love.

Unbreakable

You want to see me fall?
You want to see me fail?
Keep watching,
ever constantly I’m changing.
You can’t break me,
you didn’t make me.
You can’t stop this,
the change has already begun.
EVOLVE!
REVOLVE!
EVOLUTION!
REVOLUTION!
The storm clouds have broke,
I WANT TO LIVE!
Never before has the specter,
that is death,
fled from me.
Flee before me,
my light is burning with the strength of a million supernovas.
No longer shall it be dimmed,
by the constant shadows set to destroy me.
Now they run.
NOW THEY FLEE!
I am meant for more.
I am meant for something great.
A tongue of gold,
a soul of platinum.
You still want to see me fall?
You still want to see me fail?
Never shall this happen.
I AM GOD!
I AM GAIA!
I am the deity he made me.
I am one with the earth,
the wind,
the rain,
the driven snow.
I AM ONE!
I AM THE UNBREAKABLE!
You have tried my whole life,
still the scars remain.
BUT THEY ARE FADING!
FLEEING!
RUNNING!
You fear me,
that is why you have sought to destroy me.
I will save those you have beat down,
I will lift them right back off the ground.
My heartbeats,
they pound,
just like war drums they sound,
calling out loud and clear,
for all the broken to hear.
CALLING SALVATION!
SCREAMING REVELATIONS!
Beating you back shadow,
destroying your darkness specter.
LIGHTING ALL BEFORE ME!
Making it clear to see,
YOU SHALL NOT FUCKING WIN THAT EASILY!
YOU CAN’T STOP THIS TIDE!
CHANGE HAS ARRIVED!
So this is a call to all those who see,
that we are so much more than this body.
Those that long to ride the wave,
across this beautiful earth with us.
Take up your weapons,
your smiles,
your lights,
our LOVE,
and together lets drive back this infectious dark.
This terrible cold shall flee before our warmth.
Let nothing stand before us.
STRIKE DOWN THE HATE!
DESTROY THE FEAR!
DEMOLISH THE VENOMOUS WHORES!
OBLITERATE THE WOLVES!
Let love lead the way.
LET LOVE WIN THE DAY!
