we are perched on opposite wings of the world tree / separated by more than heavy dirt and hungry seas

opus magnus (/edit)

if tonight will be the night that receives my last breath,
let my legacy endure upon this rock

may I have built a cathedral over the heads of the broken
may my words have set fire to a stranger’s skin
may my hands have been the tools of god and country

I am not mozart not kahlo not ayn rand
but let my genius be that I have lived my purpose
lived it and lived it well

I pray for courage to stand above the ease of idleness
gaining my immortality not in mere expression
but in memories that others will grasp in their palms
on their journeys to their own golden glory 

good god law school please explain yourself
