The Journey's Just Begun

The Journey's Just Begun

it's in our hands
we can bend
and shape it

through force
of will
manipulate it

through breath
of life
we
manifest it

we master these
techniques
through acts
of patience

each page
represents
mental
exorcism

reshaping
the minds
of those
possessed

we press
the kill switch
then
we let
the weak
digress

into
the ignorance
of their own
shattered mess

the excuse
they call
a "life"
is a trifle

we've been
lied to
not once
but too
many times

it's difficult
to find
inside 
the trust
to place
in mankind

when freedom
is found
when one
with the mind

so
have faith
in the soul
and continue
to grow

through
the things
that this life
has yet
to be shown

while
never
expected
and
always
neglected

the meek
will inherit
the crowns
of gold

not bought
and sold
this is
NOT
for trade

never
will we
give in
to the
price
of pain

as
the chosen
you will
stand
and live
without shame

while this
love represents
those who
feel the same

it's a bond
that links
and
connects us

through
like-minded
verses spoken

through
the stress
and all
the commotion

we will
speak peace
to mend
a heart broken

while praying
that the storm
subsides

with every
tear shed
and every
drop bled

while setting
the guilty free
and sprinting
home

without apology
the time
has come to be
the ones
to resurrect hope

because
when
it's all
said and done

we are
going
to be
the ones

who will rise
in the morning
and elevate
with the sun

and bask
in its rays
and illuminate
the day

the journey's just begun
