"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." We will remain.

Bared myself wholly heart and body unadorned
Stripped down solely
To the evil and the good
Felt no shame
Naked to the world
And all illusions shattered

Running all the time
Ain't going nowhere
It's a new page in the same book
It's a new game with the same rules
The lights go down
Fade to black on the set
And we ain't seen nothing yet

So don't be tempted by the shiny apple
Don't you eat of a bitter fruit
Hunger only for a taste of justice
Hunger only for a world of truth
'Cause all that you have is your soul


  1. Oh crap. Lis, are you crazy now?


    Please stop that?

    1. Agreed. Nothing good ever comes from writing ominous sounding stuff.

  2. All that you keep is your soul.

  3. i would argue that. some people have two souls, their own and the one who the love's.

    then there's people have none. people who trade them away. or dont deserve one.

    still, i love your poem. it's very touching. :)
