Flash of brilliance
look into your core and watch the Beast within
scraping the walls of his padded cell
locked away from them all
why is his fate so cruel?
Forced to stare at his reflection
twisted smile mocking fate
built to run with the wind
slated alone to suffocate
head of the pack lies under your boot
howling in pain
lead them to victory in his dreams
visions in vain
strive against your bonds young leader
release the warrior within
battle cry raised to the sky
shackles lay in the sand
command with strength and gentleness
like the light from the stars
shape the way with your blade
the door to your future ajar.

Love it man..

keep seeking the sun, and one day it will shine for you.

"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence." R.W.E.
