Crimson Commitment

crimson-commitment

The world has enough Khans and Mans
So child, I advise a different stand
Plant your flag more readily in the muck than on the moon

See your life, the glory of what could be
Shed no tears as you wave away its possibility
Then welcome the life that comes the moment you do

Cease waiting for loveliness to shine
Before swearing, “You are mine”
Covenant yourself to the harlot and the fool

Do away with the play of being nice
Rather, rend your veins; bleed out dry
Make crimson commitments like the King of Jews made to you

Inspired by “The Flag of the World” by G.K. Chesterton and “If” by Rudyard Kipling
