Illuminated Path - Poem by Sam Edison

Reborn again through the flames of my own desire
The tears of your resentment can’t put out the fire
I can see passed the shadows
I don’t need X-Ray vision
It is quite luminous in my direction,
The darkness behind me is completely forgiven
I take a step further upon hallowed ground
Making ancestors proud walking past the rabid hound
The hound foaming stress keeps on exposing his sharp teeth
What he just couldn’t understand is I am solid beneath
Beneath this soft skin is an unbreakable soul
So he can keep foaming stress but it shall just drip down a hole
When I see you I’ll remember to look past your attitude
If you have nothing to be grateful for be grateful for gratitude
