My Resolve— Much Needed about Now

My Resolve— Much Needed about Now October 25, 2020

Remember the story of Sisyphus and his rock pushed up the hill?

Ash plumes rise
In electrified skies
Incandescent light
Oh, with flash bolt eyes
And no one knows why

I’ve been drawn to this lie
I’m down when they’re high
On a survival line
In my resolve, I move the rock
Maybe fall down trying
My ineptitude stares me down
In this space, I cower
I try to stand above the frame
Stand apart, not by it
And I move on up above the hill
To maybe fully flower
I flower
Reach for the heights
And then throw on to the depths
I look for someone wise
With a soft caress
Will I find myself alone
Repeating numbing ties
You could help roll it up
‘Cause I got no backup plan
Oh, in my resolve, I move the rock
Maybe fall down trying
My ineptitude stares me down
In this space, I cower
I try to stand above the frame
Stand apart, not by it
And I move on up above the hill
To maybe fully flower
Ooh, I flower
Move on up and I roll back down
Grandpa’s book, no one hears my sound
Upward, downward for so long
With my resolve, I climb and climb and I fall
In my resolve, I move the rock
Maybe fall down trying
My ineptitude stares me down
In this space, I cower
I try to stand above the frame
Stand apart, not by it
And I move on up above the hill
To maybe fully flower
Ash plumes rise
In an electrified sky
An incandescent light
With flash bolt eyes
On a survival line
