To try is to tread on the path of failure.

To succeed is to dodge the faults in the earth.

To cry is to shed away the footprints.

When victory brings one mirth.

To unfold the paths of those who’ve lost is to name those like yourself.

To remain in shield from the lives of woe is to keep one’s soul in health.

To sleep in tidings harsh and loud means no true rest is brought.

When lying awake with eyes asleep brings the answers they sought.

To fall is to stare at the ground of loss.

To jump is to span the holes.

To shut your fears to make the hells hide.

When only in lies does truth abide.

Memories that fade will never dance, nor never see a tongue.

Rocks with etchings clear and bold shall see no songs once sung.

To die is to live and see what life hides.

To live is to die and see what death cries.

If you want to be a writer, pack up and go home. If you want to write, welcome aboard.
