Diligence


Surrender your diligence

For I shall not surrender mine!

Clutching my inner viper

Choking it

Removing its meaningless existence

From this vast world that consumes us all

I can't help but wish I could let go

Allow some of that sweet, marvelous oxygen

To fill the desperate lungs of my monster

And reveal all to you

Uncover all of my feelings

About everything

But I must remain silent

I'll surely tell you someday

And when I do, you'll understand my stubbornness now
