"Perseverance" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"Perseverance"

The wherewithal to wear it all on your sleeve

The first person we practice deceiving is thee

Our one and only

Me

I mean, I

In a tangled web, we all lie

Searching for truth, met with a wall

Slamming through, standing tall

Persistently persisting to persist to exist

Time presses on

Our throats

Demanding we divide ourselves up, apart, spread thin

Compartmentalized

Disallowing our thoughts to have a conversation

Segregated souls

Mixed emotions

Molotov cocktails; smash inside my belly

Coating my walls with fuel

I swallow my pride, it enters as a spark

Igniting a fire

Burning hot

A furnace in a train

Gaining speed

A powerful loco, motivated

Climbing

Climbing

Climbing

Uphill

Climbing

Climbing

Climbing

Still

Climbing

Climbing

Climbing

It will

      Thanks Dana, I was waiting for a little love on this one. Thanks for the kind words and stopping by.

      I love the verse that says the first person we practice to deceive is thee. Very true words indeed.
