Until death do me apart, I'll stick with the way I feel down in my soul and heart.


Before I write no book
I'll write a bad book
Before I write no verse
I'll write bad verse
Before I just sit on my butt
and do nothing
I'll get out and mess up something
Before I let failure sublime
I'll fail each time

I'll be the author of a messed
up work
sitting back wondering if
I'll ever get a perk
Knowing nothing but failure
will come
I nibble on each crumb

Before I let anyone stop me
they'll have to take a pistol
and drop me
When it comes to my books
and verse need
If I have to be the only
one that read
this is as far as I'll succeed
Makes me no difference as long
as I don't lose any blood and bleed
