arise, as smoke licks the eyes
burning, a magical ride yearning
climbing higher and higher like flying
diving, dipping, this mind-fuck is lifting
earth to moon and beyond since birth
from and to, we’ve become
god like creatures through time, clawed
honing skills along the way learning
incredible discoveries made memorable
joy and sadness how life builds and destroys
kind, that of man and woman both find
love, that which is the catalyst we write of
morning will come as sure as knowing
night to follow, with its own glow of light
our paths were meant to cross like a flower
pollinating, a rebirth, continues populating
quietly and for some loudly
roaring our desire to fly free even soaring
skyward to reach heights always onward
travelling to the stars seen twinkling
under our wanting gaze with hunger
vow we must, to live and never bow
we are kings and queens of land and sea
X your mark in this world and beyond with vex
you only live once so enjoy the view
zest and zeal will end with permanent zzz’s
