Life Is Real...

Poem by Benedict Lestat

We art real
You - Blood - Being
Rhythm - Soul - Beat

Everything fits, now isn´t this neat`?

Blame the Karma, Joss, Fate
Hey, you wanna be my mate?
Forget the order,
Step over the border! -
It´s all you ever get.

Dispair? Empty echoes in a shell,
Just see, retreive and run like hell.

Screw it, I say, screw what´s slow and chilly -
Who gives a damn? !

Do you what you like
- see what it´s like.
And never make a difference.

It´s all up to you, you know?
Cherish the world, let it die with one blow
It´s the one and only.
Our show.
Your show.
It´s nothing but a goddamn game.
Either you play it - or you´ll go insane.

Take the high exit,
run free and wild.
You´re alive, you´re human,
Mother, Father and child.

It´s all we get, no moment to waste, we hustle and bustle it´s time for haste.

Jump to your feet and feel the beat - the streaming blood in your vains is the clock life contains. Once it stops, don´t wait for it to go on - it´s just your soul that lives on.

Run, run my friend, comrade,
fellow man. The lesson has begun, but the aim ain´t the test - It´s the way how you get there, no time to rest.

Sit down for a while, let your spirit grow wings.
See the notes of the melody of life mark the way, made by crystal strings.

Open your eyes and take a look around - Tomorrow is free for everyone - it only has to be found.

Continue the line,
jump to the next verse,
join the chorus and join the melody which breaks the curse.

.... Are you still here?

    Now this one I got...I like the rhythm; the beat. The part that starts 'The one and only...' makes a good hook. Good job.(Report)Reply
