Fearlessly

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
.

Written for someone you know, or is this a manual for how to handle the end of life in general? Either way, it's spot on in my opinion.

"Bleed them pure" This phrase caught my attention. It's quite layered, at least in how I interpreted it in the poem or even on it's own. Blood usually taints, and pure is probably the last thing one would think in conjunction, so I liked this unexpected pairing of the two words.
The last stanza also stood out to me a lot. The beginning two lines were so pretty, especially the "soon smoke and blown out ash." In general though, this poem had some nice imagery.
Haha, I also just realized looking over it again that pure ends each stanza! Huh, interesting...
Nice work! :)

Go slam your dreams upon that drum
that rages in your chest so sure-

You've done just that here. I'm getting a more empowering "Dr. Seuss" sort of feel here, but you pen a very well-done inspirational piece.

"The world's a blaze and you a spark,
a flame, soon smoke and blown out ash"

By Jove, you've captured it perfectly.

I meant the bobble head! Did you have your own bobble head made?
This is an instant perk-up Matt. Very well worded and the rhyme seamlessly fits the mood. Enjoyable read. Well done.

Thank you, Mallika! :)
Describes the word "Fearlessly" and "Courage" Perfectly. The quote: "Don't fantasize that hope's enough," will always be everyone's first choice of when everything turns into chaos, but NO. Hope is strong, hope is powerful, but there's always something that holds the hope in place. That plays a role to keep everyone's dreams alive. Which is Courage, fearless and bravery.
