summer never seemed so short
you and your hobbies
if you smiled less
and smiled more
would you be seen for what you are?
solid, beating, thundering hearts are for lesser men
so you say
corporeal, shackled, lumbering
yours is the knowledge of mortality
using your flaws as a weapon
all but one
that final, miniscule, glimmering piece that eludes even you
yes, even you
that final percent you lack
will destroy you
thus proving the humanity you rail against oh-so-calmly
have you ever seen a bomb so relaxed?
could you conceive a storm this at ease?
it cannot last forever
one will defeat the other
one must always defeat the other
what will you be?
