There's No Need... - Poem by Micah Callahan

There's no need for fire to survive.
There's no need for anything to grow.
There's no need... just tell me, if you know,
Why should I keep my mind-to-soul strife?

The world seems weird, existing still,
An' on the clock the arrow's touchin' 'zero',
The prayer's asking heavens for the hero
To stop the end and follow devil's will.

When you have nothin' to take care of,
That's easy to pretend to be a hero.
Tho' there's just a boy behind the mirror,
The heart is young, still hopeful an' soft.

There's no need to make my words exact,
There's no need to look at watch for 'zeroes'.
A breath's like wave, the lives'd be the rivers,
An' all of us will no more be wreck'd.
