The higher we climb
The harder it becomes to find
An end that resembles no other
And faith in us and each other
In order to claim what is rightfully ours
We’ll climb, be bruised, in order to caress the stars
One and only in which I confide
Guardian to what lies
Higher, higher…
I wish to divulge what is hidden
Uncover all that may be forbidden
Grey, blue, amber skies
To merge into what I’d want to be like
Limitless and infinite
You deserve to be more…
To obtain the light, and to hide it from others
In order to give it what I judge to be better
In order to adorn it in what I judge to be bitter
Sweet and sour
Into what I’d like to see this hour
To rise above limitations and what you expect
To regain control and to dare to forget
What I was taught, what they taught you too
That our limits stood where they wanted you
To stand, to hold ground on what we were given
To forget that that we could change and be forgiven
That what we were told was not set in stone
That what our experience would teach could be shown
The way to evolve
The way to grow higher
The way to which we could set fire
In order to reach to gain number one
To stand and watch as our memories, our past regrets, our forgotten fiends, and our limitations run.
for :iconwhydoidothiseveryday: 's contest around the theme 'number one'.

just finished this and i took from the theme what i wanted...the way to reach and always try to get higher, to try harder in order to reach what 'number one' represents to me, in order to, not neccessarily be 'the best' in the eyes of others, but just to reach 'your best'.

heh, i can spout so much crap sometimes....:P

again, if anyone has any theme, or word or phrase, or something they could give me as a prompt for anything, it would be greatly appreciated ^ ^

as always, comments are also greatly appreciated ^ ^

EDIT: heh, I won first place ^ ^
