Winning (Mature)

Mature Content
--

I can dance in the space between the worlds,
I can create dreams with letters, words,
I can light up the night with hope,
I can swallow the whole spinning earth.

I can decide left or right,
I can decide to stand and fight,
But what hangs beyond my worth
Is seeing beyond this endless blight.

If I finish my work and live in success,
I can appreciate what I've been blessed,
My ability to emotionally write...
...but I'm planning to fail that test.

If I finish my work and end it all,
Make myself win, then let myself fall,
Cut out on a high note no-one would guess.
Achieve my dream and achieve my death.

Better to die win honor pouring in,
Than cut out when the going's getting grim;
I'm planning to when standing most tall,
When the light is brightest, before it goes dim.

I'm going to take my world in my hands,
Take my free will and take my stand,
Take my whuffie and WIN;
Return to my book, my love, my friends.
