Fearlessly

A Poem by mattavelli
"

.!.

"
Come on, my friend, embrace life's pain,
the heartbreaks, and your death to come.
Don't drench yourself in worry's rain
and drag through soggy days, so glum.
Go slam your dreams upon that drum
that rages in your chest so sure
as breaths you seize approach their sum
and fearless thoughts are all that's pure.

There's comfort in the wallowing
and moaning when life's oh so tough,
but poison's all you're swallowing
and tainted confidences bluff.
Don't fantasize that hope's enough.
Break free. The action is the cure.
Be willful and grind smooth those rough
and fearful thoughts. And, bleed them pure.

The world's a blaze and you a spark,
a flame, soon smoke and blown out ash;
so burn on 'til your skies are dark
and strangle time 'til moments flash.
And, on that final breeze, you thrash,
through whipping winds you won't endure,
let all the gods proclaim you brash
and fearless and a life so pure
.

Prophetic write. How we wallow in life's freefall.
If we can stay in pain. We will.
Yet if we just toss the coin. Who knows what life can give us.

Thank you, Mr. e! :)
I totally "rapped" this in my head as I read it, and nodded my head at its truth.

"There's comfort in the wallowing
and moaning when life's oh so tough,
but poison's all you're swallowing
and tainted confidences bluff. "

Yaassss...get out of your own way and get on with it!

Well done.

Fan-tas-tic! Honestly! This is grand! The musicality gets choppy in just a couple of lines, with some words hitting the wrong beats, but this is profound! This is sublime! This is amazing! Well done!

This is so great! It's an anthem that powerfully incites us to be fearless and strong-to take action and not waste time worrying about things we can't control Great rhyme and flow. "Let the gods proclaim you brash and fearless and a life so pure."-Masterful line! Love this.
