Elevation

23 February, 2007

First
I stand up for the person I am
I have become
I will be

Second
I lean towards lie
work and strife
Conquer of battles

Third
I sway in indecision
battling heart
mind and soul

Fourth
I fall in love
with the soft skin
sweet smell of perfume
laced with sensuality

Fifth
I stumbled
tripped
broken.

First
I stand up
for myself
Elevate...

but the point is that we need to go through each step to make that a circle...well otherwise its jus a bit of meaningliess curve really.
