A Mind Set

Set your jaw towards the night. Let the magma of your veins spill from your eyes, blazing truth.

Stand when you’ve fallen, brushing ashes from your Stars -and set your jaw towards the night.


** my motto condensed into two lines **

    "Let the magma of your veins spill from your eyes" "Brushing ashes from your Stars" "set your jaw towards the night" absolutely delicious phrasing! I'm always amazed by your poetry, Daffy, always. The images here draw such a picture, it's wonderful and vastly inspiring. It makes me want to write :) KCOG, Bugsy =D
