This World

This world is now aflame
And I have seen it in the sky
I have seen it in the lovers
That look into one anothers eyes

I have seen it in the madness
That now stalks and walks our streets
I have seen it in the sadness
Of once brave souls that gave into retreat

Much has been said of temporary glory
Much has been given for popular praise
Many steps have been mistakenly taken
That do not account for the

End of days


For it's never been easy

To be in this world but not of it
This world of awesome beauty and choice
But better to walk on alone forever
Than to give credibility to anything

Other than truth's voice

Notes.... in the journal of the journey

Let us face the miracles

With our wit and grace
Let us find our lives alive
Let us find our place

To apply our discipline
Our integrity and pride
Let us seek through humility
Our beauty not to hide

It is not done for the honors
It's is not done for the reward
But to pay homage to the light
We are all walking toward

To get a bit of respect
In one's own time
From one's own peers
Is worth the effort

Worth the climb
