More To Life

An expression of objection comes out of the silence
Invisible declaration, disapproval or dissent?
Our silence expression could be our way to oppose the giants,
Perhaps a new way for us to vent.

A protest against our senses?
A way for us to say, “I don’t want to experience anything.”
But is it OK to hide behind those defenses?
Is it OK to be afraid of everything?

Why do we choose such an informal way to dispute the demands of our vessels?
Why do we construct declarations to oppose something that needs to be accomplished?
Let us end the excuses, we were not meant to just be born and then settle,
We are here to astonish,
Not just others but us.

So dismiss the expression of objection that comes out of the silence, that is not you,
They are the voices of the past trying to stop you from being who you truly are.
Connect the dots and never see blue as blue,
It means more than sadness, just like a scar;
A clear reminder that you were meant to shine.

The objective?
To enjoy the ride and to touch as many souls while alive,
And to erase the notion that some souls are defective,
So don’t protest and dive, dive deep, there is more to life than just survive.
