Dissolvere recreant

Many of us
Take on the trials by fire
And step amongst the flames
Seeking to recreate
Those moments
Of passionate fury
When we come to terms
With being our own worst Enemy
And we search
For something that is better
Than our own homes

You question
Whether you should just dissolve
With the waves
Let the tide take you
And all of your failures
To another land
And recreate yourself
As loneliness

We can stay
Underneath the guns we point
At our own temples
Until we pluck up the courage
To pull the trigger
Or we can drop it all
And run away
Refusing to beat ourselves up
Any longer
Because our lives don’t exist
Nothing is correct
When others are wrong
