oh how we wish and we dream
with each step
each thought
each breath
we fight every second
we race
we climb
and claw
we rip and we shake
crafting
plotting
we sacrifice
mobilize
and plunge
forming a tight grip
and never letting go
on god
on life
on science
on thought
on time
until it's ripped from our clasp
and even as it's drifting we cling to it's majesty

allied with the sun
we strive
