While I'm burning with this new love
He walked away from me
I try to stop him, but the resistance is absolute!

Man’s path of least resistance
is described as destiny.
The outcome predetermined,
as a river running to the sea.

You captured my resistance,
Busted down my guarding wall,
You slew all my defenses;
Forced my heart to fall.

If they'd only meet resistance
  Perhaps they would gestate...

This last autumn leaf
Without resistance it falls.
Then drifting gently,
It lands it's golden form
upon her soft, smiling face....

I look in a wavering resistance
as the slumber shadow settles
as I know the light of my eye

   when resistance doesn't have its game on

The Spirit Head
Temptations lure
Materials allure
                        But the Spirit Head assures
                        That my resistance must endure
Be sure...

Resolve irreverently
Every violation of Godly law
Violence attending resistance
Others have failed
Let us succeed
Tyranical rule must be defeated...

Ready to fly
Sun kissing flesh,
eyes colored free
brand new and frosh;

Feverish wings
resistance weak,
Spring's glow so warm
gone for the week.

I watched my TV and I laughed
The boxing was really quite daft
They kept social distance
No punch met resistance
But one caught a cold from the draught...
