There’s always fresh energy
Brimming with intensity
Hiding in dark corners
Desperate for the world to see.
Like lava flows
To hardened rock
It’s trapped inside
By your own locks
Do not be fooled
By empty hallways
Behind the walls,
Just beyond sight
Lie infinite bands
Of liquid light
No matter how long it may take
Break those walls, destroy that hate
Wade through the bitterness that boils
Inside us all — bile from life’s toils.
Even with your knuckles broken,
Bloodied, mangled, twisted open
Once you breach that hardened magma
The suns inside will bathe you whole
And once engulfed in that blinding light
Having broken down those jagged walls
You feel the force of everything.
Of who you are
— Sans the bullshit —
Revitalised and energised
Purged of bitterness, purged of hate
— This world doesn’t need more of that.
Smiles and light and love
Resigned to darkened corners.
Beat down those barbed barriers
And spill your light into the world.
We owe it to each other.
