Law of Attraction

When considering the concept of the “law of attraction”, I simply reduce it to the exercise of unity progress.  As you find something that...

Forgotten Symbolism of Competition

The attempt to revolutionize a career with new communication
Was met with interpretive noise and ruination
Sadly it was predictable
Even by a lesser individual
So what should that mean for me
Smitten with a conniption 
Of lost or not earned wages
Allows for the attrition of whats written
To decompose in stages
How do you keep going when the immediate return is
Nothing
Something positive has to restore the feeling of accomplishment
As both feet are firmly affixed to the ground
The blissful heights are nowhere to be found
Prayers for a winning lotto ticket 
Mixed with copious applications to employers
Let me know a fiance and lawyer would have been a better route
Candle lit dinners are replaced with sipping dark stout
How do you ascend to your dreams that are too big to attain
Worse pain 
Loss of mind or broken heart
Repeat the same task expecting a different result or start anew
Collapse to your knees and pray or seek the comfort of a neighbor too
Sometimes the favor is to do no favors
Labor the turmoil of hard work
With a tear in the eye and lecturous smirk
Its all in the inevitable works
As the cogs turn and plates shift
Can we move forward without mischief
Can we generate a better atmosphere to live
Can Obioku be the bigger and better man
Can he knows what it is like to have the winners seat
Cut
Lather rinse repeat
The appearance of what we already knew
Stares you in the face once again
I am what I am
But what is that to you

Low-End Sanctity

Lonely, lonely, lonely
And lost to the world
Phony. phony, phony
With less care to give
The new paradigm has shifted to more surreal cause
As the mistake to not participate ripples all flaws
I am no the longer the judge of circumstance
But the misgiver of wrongful entrance
Once foretold a man cannot live on his word alone
However each statement builds a new home
Turmoil is the result of plans not finished
As disappointment reigns for those awaiting the end of the line
One must adhere to the crowd to the sublime income
For in my own light I have not seen the shine
The earth's view is not mine alone
Broken and shattered in a tireless fight
Wishing for another moment to make it right
But the interval is always fleeting and does not generate response
Miracles introspectively reveal the inevitable failure to launch
These words are nothing
These thoughts are even less
A cruel fate is the only thing left to test
Will a hero arise to spark a sense of renewal
Or will the dark spiral continue to engulf 
The predictable conclusion is one of illusion
If you can believe in things that are not true
So what am I to do from here forth
Live a life of God's approval
Only I have no idea how long it can last
Showing plans for a laugh
Causes tears for a presenter
Heaven and hell has paths to enter
