"Momentum" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on November 17, 2014


Through the mist

I can see over the horizon

Into tomorrow we go

Full steam ahead, a head full of steam

Every day a blur

A fog for us to cut through, cutting down

Reaping what we've sown

Harvesting what we've grown

Out of our flesh

Out of our minds

Jumping out of my skin

Relinquishing the weight

Stepping outside to get a better look

Down to the bare bone

A naked skeleton, shaking out in the cold

A ghost without a face

Walking amongst the living

Struggling to find himself

Lost in the struggle

The tug of war

Pulling at his pants

Ready to have this dance

For this dance, is the last dance, then we're done

The party is over

But I see potential

I feel the breeze

Off the seas

Off the waves

In the sun

The chosen one

Is the one we choose to be

Feeling energy run back through the veins

Blood running thick

Viscosity through the long lines of history

Connected to the engine

To the heart of the machine

The heart of man

The first commodity

Repackaged and reequipped

Adapting to the terrain

To the turf

To the sport

To the game

To the challenge

To the cry

To the trumpets


Symbols of triumph

Victory; a declaration no man can claim

For the battle remains

Ever constant

On going

Going on

Going over, the edge

Gaining speed

Falling down

Burrowing deep

      Thanks Jodah, I almost titled it "potential" but felt momentum is the mother of potential, that energy goes into motion, into results, idk really... Velocity works too according to the definition, I fnd it fits.

      Good stuff again Eric. Another good name for this would be "Velocity". It was fast paced, energetic poetry.
