Be Like Noah

You have to deal with it

Real life

You can’t push it down

Or sideways

You gotta simmer in it

Let it boil your blood

Be emotional

Be strong

Fall apart

Do all those things

But don’t try to avoid the pain

We’re all in pain

That’s how we know we’re alive

Use it as a vessel

When the waters pour in

Build yourself an ark



Sky as bare as a new born

My rebirth causes an itch under my fingernails

If only I could reach it

I’m trying so hard to embrace this body

To push and mold it

But I get so tired

So hungry

And yet that doesn’t stop me

I lift my demons and sweat them outta me

Because there’s no other way

To get where I’m going without persistence
