"The Quest" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on April 15, 2014

"The Quest"

To catch a rising star

Be bigger, brighter and better than what we are

The perfect note

The home run blast

The knockout punch

The blue ribbon

The right shade of lipstick

The lips of a lover

The right hair cut

A bright new shirt

A red sports car

A high paying job

A vacation on a tropical island

A head shot to say that you're here

It's your world and you deserve all the sweet things

A million followers

All the accolades

Data to show you are loved


Because you're emotions matter

Your'e a star, you're the center of the universe

Earth waits to watch you fall

Back in the sandbox

A child dancing for attention

Jumping through hoops

Obstacles in the game

Looking for love

A 15 minute orgasm

Warhol is watching

Popping out of his pants

Thinking; making money is art


Kill something you love

Learn from it

Use it on the quest

The one up the mountain where all things are clear and out of reach

Knowing that you will fail

Defiance in the name of

A protest against death

      So, I’ll just be over here –

      Released – unshackled –

      All patched-up … pretending to

      care – over there by the water’s edge

      soaking-up the sun.

      Some amazing imagery here Eric. Awesome. We all want to be praised and admired for our achievements, but the more successful you are the more people want to see you fall. v+
