Muse Cruise

Where once we breathed the bitter air
that transfused in us and made us care
now we grasp the tiger's tail
that pulls our life
and cuts our trail

Once life becomes the only goal
we can embrace the gifts we hold
reliance is our saving grace
inside the mirror's reflected face

For we are given but one chance
to curl and weep
or laugh and dance
Thoughts be our biggest enemies
for it likes to steal

Do, don't think
except to learn
follow the heart
it's meant to yearn
my muse ignites my pen tonight
ambition's Phoenix
on an inaugural flight

And I shall be as I am meant
with happiness earned
and a life
well spent
