Don't Die
I'm uneasy -
Today this day I die.
This new day, new year.

Bloody palms laid to rest,
Heart beat put to the test.
Glass shards thrown across the way,
I extended my unwelcomed stay.

Morning light, she slits her wrist,
In a fight, he raises his fist.
Night before marched soldiers of contradiction,
Artisan prepared for his crucifixion.

They said love wouldn't last.
They said it would just past.
I'm a man of my word, commit to the fast.
I put up the sail, I put up the mast.

I returned to the scene.
I'm no longer corporate's machine.
