Keep Your Head Up…

Seeing as I’ve been told that my writing would be well-suited for the rap/spoken word type of genre, I’ve decided to pursue that option lyrically in this post (for fun).

“Keep Your Head Up”

A thin dividing line

Constantly moving between

A world that exists in truth

And a world that remains unseen

A stained-glass reputation spreads,

Bleeding its hands clean of

A word that becomes an act and

Separates sacred from obscene.

A stone cast at a shadow

That turns man into machine

A faith that becomes a law

And judges a hopeless teen

A cause that births the rebel

Makes the end outweigh the mean

A cry that rings out for change

But lacks the heart to intervene.

You’re so much better than you know.

You’re a garden that’s waiting to grow

You’re a well that’s wishing to overflow

You’re free, you hold the key, if you could only see

You reap what you sow.

An artist tracing a cavern wall

Confuses genius with stealth

A ceaseless whisper paints

A fractured image of itself

A billion scattered reflections reveal

A portrait of American health

A heavy crown made for giants

Draped upon the shoulders of an elf

A dead puppeteer manipulates

The same string from which he hung himself

A heartstring dangling from

A figurine upon a shelf

A dance of death, a circular orbit

Around a universe of wealth.

A copper lady turns green and rots

She refused to liberate herself.

You’re so much better than you know.

You’re a garden that’s waiting to grow

You’re a well that’s wishing to overflow

You’re free, you hold the key, if you could only see

You reap what you sow

  1. It scans well. I can see it being sung. I like the image of a dance of death being a circular orbit “arond a univserse of ealth.” Powerful image

  2. Your words paint a clear picture. We are going through great change on this earth at this time, and words such as yours help awaken the oneness within us all.
