Every word a spear that finds its mark in here where the heart beats,
where the ends of oceans meet and disappear into horizons not yet reached.
who taught me to sing when I couldn’t speak
and walk before I could barely crawl?
who is it that knows it all?
I call upon these present to present themselves,
no one moves fearing a hold up,
this ain’t no bank job
there is no heist in progress
as I progress,
every word a spear.
