Your Will

Think what you think
Do what you will
No one will wait until
What has already been
Achieved
By the dreamers
Pursuing their passions
Because doing anything
That one wants
Characterizes
Lack of character
While nobility
Makes characters
Own their own
Narratives
Narrate, if you will

Only in Name

Give me a name
Make me a knight
Give me a title
But reputations
Are actually skewed perceptions
Of human identity
Share instead of compare

Hold

Held in the hand
Sometimes being ambidextrous
Create with human hands
Instead of harm and destroy
For the world needs
Uniformity
Starting from
Within
And link the people on Earth
Hand-in-hand
Hold on!

Earthly Treasures

Majestic mountains
Mystical,
Magical, rebirth
Phoenixes rising above ashes
Build upon the land
Earthly soil
Soiled
Is not necessarily
Dirty
Because
Getting dirty takes effort
To help all that exists on Earth

Lights On

“Lights out”
Suggests bedtime
Yet light
Is very symbolic
For life
Truth
And Reality
And within modern
Modernity
It is more important
Than ever before
To let
Individualized light
Radiate
Before darkness
Overtakes
All that does not glow
So grow
And show
The world
Who we are

Prince

Royalty might be
Spectacular, but true men
Are real gentlemen

Tire

Being tired is
Normal, but the wheels do spin
For the ones who try
