Kept To Only Self-Demean


The time has come to get away from...
What's been done and underneath.
To let it go to be exposed and show,
On the surface. To be seen.
And...
Free it from the keeping of your hold.

Let it go like a crumbled boulder
That sacrifice you diet.
You hide to lie denied.
That sacrifice you diet,
To carry on your backside.
Let it go.
That feeling feeds defeat...
Kept to only self-demean.

Drop and forget about...
Your need to self-demean.
Skip over it and commit to quit...
Your need to self-demean.

'Nothing worth having is easily received.'

Let it go.
That mental beating.
Let it go,
Your need to self-demean.
Let it go like a crumbled boulder.
Experience a brand new scene.

Let it go.
Let it go.
Let it go...
That mental beating.
Let it go,
Your need to self-demean.
Let it go like a crumbled boulder.
Experience a brand new scene.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
