•HATRED•
Hatred drives from the mind, balance.
Balance makes us able to love.
And what better goal?
It might not seem much,
but it’s all we got.
There’s wealth in it.
Don’t allow hatred to ever take the place
of love in your heart.


•STRETCH•
It must be early.
Still the darkest hour reigns.
Lights of a lurid color wash over empty ways.
I feel the static current of wires writhe in pain.
I’m so tired but I can’t seem to fall asleep. Fall asleep.
So the hope that I could find relief,
was a stretch. Stretch. 
In the manner of lions we fight to eat.
In the language of the silent we fail to speak. Fail to speak.
Striking balance isn’t something we care to seek.
Taken so far from what we meant to reach.
We must stretch. Stretch. Stretch.
We’re astounding in our ability to take.
At the mercy of desires we can’t escape.
As we grope at the ever rising peak,
so we stretch. Stretch. Stretch.
