Let the past empower not devour you,
blink that third eye dry and let the cowards prove,
that fear effects domination,
as power hungry demons were starving for confirmation,
I'm hardly a conversation, I'm starting the conservation of energy through my being for seeing a brighter nation.
I can no longer ponder another's fixation with digression,
my ears remain ready for confusing confessions,
but they attempt selling the words from concession,
I won’t drop or lessen my positive light, I ask, is a spiritual battle still a cognitive fight?
Yes the most vital, let this bible unfold and be told with no title,
don't mistake envy of state of being for actions suicidal,
I just wish to prove yolo wrong, come back as a spirit so you may hear it in a song or another form of expressed emotion, so we can progress once the earth hits lost commotion,
take some love and meditation and conjure up the potion
as the earth's still in motion, if the leaders here would tell the truth I'd identify promotion. But what do I know I'm twenty with no college, undermined for not conforming to mainstream knowledge. Spirit, Love and Peace will grow soon, once we've vacated the station and choose to change tune
