*A New Power*
Let yourself rise up to be
All that you could be
If you would just open your eyes
As if they were still closed
And you refused to awake from that dream
That was never in reach while awake.

My love is this elegy called "Failure's Art".
That is meant for no one in particular
But also for everyone with a heart to see
And an ear to touch, a hand to hear
And an eye to fill.

The infinite opportunity of anything.
To hold, feel, experience and long.
Live into your dream forever.
And obtain a feeling that transcends the idea of living.
It's the infinite possibility of everything.
Open your eyes and wait
For that something, someone who needs you.

Is grace really in its way?
