I Rise by James Dennis Casey IV

I Rise

So many deaths
I’ve found a way
To slip beneath the fault lines
To live another day

Our spirit lives on
Though this body doth fail us
We will live again

A ghost song dream
In my eternal mind
takes me to a place
Of answers

Time and time again
I see the same vision

Chaos and disorder
A time of pain

Then

Peace and serenity
On another plane

Only to return
With more furious a vengeance
Dancing
Upon the dawn

I rise
Time and time again
I rise
