Into The Fray

from by lantern for a gale



Without delusions
In this lonely universe
Without enthusiasm
For this barbarous course
My fragile sanity
Enriching, bruising me.
I don’t mind, my mind, this fervour
(at least it’s mine) This reckless anger
(without denying)
I often feel
Too young to give up caring
Too old to suffer fools
A non-believer
Non-believer, Pursuing truth

So I step into the fray
In to the fray
Black dog’s lurking
I roar when needs be
And face the wind
Every fucking day

Now I’m
Strong for more than me..
A new-found sense of
Strong for more than me
And not held back by
My imagination
Stunted in the past, or
Internal narrations
Where I’m miscast
I’m gaining respect
For myself at long last
Approaching the place
Where my expectations don't crash

In to the Fray
On the shoulders of giants
Building a legacy
In to the fray
Once more, and always
