Life's Promises

Sometimes purging the soul of all negativity is mind-liberating.

Claim To Fame

My mind is full
productivity is empty
life can be bull
but I push through
Feelling lazy—what's the use?
Forcing myself to do the do
life isn't a game
I know that's true
will I ever have a claim to fame
time is shorter than promised
if I fail—I will own the blame
on my cell via word document
journaling my thoughts
will my words die with me—buried in a tomb,
or will they be written on a monument?
I sweat, my tears run, and I bleed,
flowing out of me like a condiment
my soul purges all its temptation
I need to live on without cease
I can't risk condemnation
giving up on life is not a sound choice
So I fight to find a reason to live
I'd rather be happy and broke,
rather than sad with a Rolls Royce
as long as I breathe there's still a chance
so I stand tall and push forward
failure isn't something I choose to romance...
