LIFELONG

Launch whatever you want;

You really can’t sink this ship.

None of your poison kisses, once blown,

Will reach my lips.

Give it everything you’ve got.

This is not the fight you want;

It’ll take your whole lifelong, to land one shot.

Why seek revenge, when I can befriend

The enemy from within?

Why make amends, when I know you’ll be coming around, again?

To take a crown that could never fit your head.

Or didn’t you believe me when I said…

“There was the story of a frozen rose,

That would last forever, though it bore no thorns,

And while it was solid, and could no longer grow…

The frozen rose had sapped the soil

So no other could be born…”

Once you step up,

You can never step back.

But you can take another lifelong shot…

This is not the fight you want.

No matter what you launch…

We all must stand to face the challenges of our time…

So you can take another lifelong shot.

You can try again, for all your lives.
