raven was laughing at me
.
i didn't listen
didn't want to
.
hahaha
.
kindred, we might be
but he likes to let me
stumble over those
two wolves' greed
reminding me
of my willful stupidity
.
pecking at your own flesh
causing avoidable wounds
he said
stupid fucking human
hahaha
you've forgotten how to see
.
the most important lessons
are the least kind
if the heat of the fire didn't hurt
we'd always be aflame
should i cry now that i've burned?
.
hahaha
.
i want to change
.
change comes if you want it
change comes if you don't want it
you can't stop change's coming
hahaha
.
no
but i can embrace it
make it mine
flow within the waters everchanging
in the stream eddy swirling
around
me
see
&
hear
truth instead of lies
.
silence
