SOUL-CONTRAST!

I will bleed folks, I will bleed... 
Blood doesn't always have to equate pain... 
It could mirror the relief that courses through; 
pregnant clouds after the rain... 

I will smile folks, I will smile...
I genuinely upturn the corners of my cheeks, 
every once in a while...
The rest of the time's a captor of my mind... 

I will think folks, I will think...
My thoughts seep through my mind and play across my face... 
No need for poker faces...
What I feel is what you see... 

I will reach folks, I will reach... 
I stretch skyward and pluck a star from the sky...
Ouch', it burns the tip of my fingertips... 
It's perchance a mediocre dream: 
The epitome of how things seem...
My dream is a bit higher & if stand on my tiptoes and reach, 
I can grasp it...and I know it's mine, 
by the way I feel on the inside... 
Fire lit desire courses through my veins...
the acquiring of this nearly drives me insane, 
but I rest assure...it won't be in vain...
