Fighting for what you believe can sometimes be as simple as jumping out of bed in the morning and heading straight for what you want most, and that's a life worth living! Even the greatest rewards don't come without a price though, and it doesn't always end the way you'd imagined no matter how hard you've worked. Still, what defines a human is not simply the outcome their past actions, but rather the resolve they find in the moment for themselves and others.


Cardinal strife,
a quarrel, a clash,
a bled bombast antagonist.

Mind the brute,
led bellied beast,
you can't conquer your hands, your feet.

You won't believe whatever you've got.
I know you're right but you know you're not,
I know the fight that we weren't taught.
It's hard to say, it's hard to fake it.
Better we blend than sever our fear,
I've got a risk seeming insincere.
Could it appear it's all just unclear
until entropy makes us its team?

Co-man, co-love.
Where from? Above!
Snow falls down from.
Where to? Care not,
I'll try listening,
I won't pretend I've done it right.

Aged wine, red lyre.
Tight fist, righteous.
Play fair, lie down.
