tonight: we’ve a long way to go

From here you can almost see the sea.
-David Gray

I can tell you we swaggered and swayed.
-Sufjan Stevens

feeling rhyme-y tonight

the overcast kinds of days bring out the heretic in me
as i ball up my fists and cling to hindrances seen
blessed, blessed the ones who believe
blessed, blessed the doubters and deceived
we flock together, all of us, in need
and that undoing tethers and tangles
i struggle to give but somehow receive

the overcast kinds of days mean forcing feet to go outside
lacing up shoes and refusing to hide
the dark and dank corners grow mildew and pride
the dark and dank corners are where we do die
and we flock together, all of us, abide
and that yields us towards that for which we cry
when our eyes are open we see there is life

even on the overcast kinds of days
especially on the overcast kinds of days
we’ve a long way to go
but the point is not that we arrive
i think it’s maybe that we get to ride
