I'm passed ecstatic
Yes and everyday is magic
Happening before it vanishes
More beautiful than tragic
Some paths had me damaged
From those missteps I've managed
To see that laughs have an advantage
Over sadness on an average
The brain's a boxer
It'll fasten up your casket
Or unlatch your straight jacket
If you fashion what you imagine
Into something tangible
Instead of trying to mask it
Radical or status quo
I don't abandon hope
I stay upon no battered roads
On every line I've wrote
I'm abnormally absorbing my own normalcy
Openly penning poems
To inspire generations of more poetry
Spoken free and emotionally
Hopefully together
And its stellar
Each story a never ender
Even though its only clever
Until somebody says it better

The void I found I felt
Meant I couldn't recognize what helped
Always picked on myself
Just to get stoked and meld
Might as well burn away the daze
Until those burdens melt
From that ignition point its swell
Like fresh air to blood cells

Proximity catalysts
But fire doesn't fuel itself
Neither do battles we fight
Boiling down to what to weld
The higher the flames height
The brighter the light
Broadcast across the sky
When darkness strikes
Hold your torches high right

I feel like having a leash on life is tight
So what I type say and write
Is overthought and under hyped
Quite often without oversight
I override the urge to earn your pride
Like its a prize because its not why
I recite these prototypes
My minds on overdrive
Linking lines but won't rely upon
One simile like
I'm actualized inside
Memory banks behind my eyes
Immortalized once captured
A level up from the spine

Obviously honest records to process
Objects get broken down
Into efforts and concepts
To redefine the best investments
Into each project
As sure as oxygen within our sighs are complex
Through our bloodlines
Impacting synaptic actions
For a good mind soma soul interaction
While the tolls stacking nobody's asking
Before their taxing
Cash in on reactions
Mixed and matching moshing atoms smashing
Let the bass shake you
Out the shackles you create
Vibrate to a higher state
And shed a little hate
Lighten up a lot
Its great
Slim chances fit or fate
Float like a butterfly
With a hurricane wake
