we should do this again sometime

t's strange on this side of thing
somehow i'm motivated to change your life
but the knowledge that when you wake up
you might find it too exhausting, too hard
your body might whisper in your ear that the fire you feel
in your heart is going to kill you if you step out your door
but every night i convince you that your body is lying
the lightening that is anxiety is something that slows
with each determined breath you take
some days you don't believe me
passion wins over protection
but you tell me to lean into that
the fire can be harnessed
that electricity can be laser focus
and 'bad' can transform into good
i usually roll my eyes, but today i take a few note
