I will not resist the purge
Experience every urge
Feelings will soon surge
Upon the mental verge

I will not say goodbye
Holding through darkest night
Upon the wind to fly
Across the jealous sky

I will not brave static acts
Nothing spared which nothing lacks
Through time making tracks
Bending with broken back

I will not suffer any oppression
Defeat by the hand of depression
Once, an absolute obsession
Given to states of compression

I will not, I must not cease
Living on life’s shortened lease
I must ride that restless beast
There is time enough for peace
