I’m finally free, free writing, and flowing

With these pretty lights in my ears

Most of my good feelings are near, if I care to hear and be here

Being steady is a virtue

It’s so hard when i’m hurting

for money, sex, and action

I’m sweating for discipline and efficacy

satisfaction don’t just rhyme with action

Letting go of the tyrant days

Bid farewell to Binding contracts

Self sustained means self contained,

constrained, tame, lame, and insane

Always pulled to push and clutch

Understand there is no rush to disengage

We can play in joy as we volley

until one's fault beckons the other way

for now,

until the next rest.
