Campfire Legends


Campfire Legends

I grabbed the bull by its horns
Jumped straight in with both feet running
I weathered the storm
I didn't stand idly by, I went out and did something

I grabbed the tail of a comet
Leaped head first into whatever's out there
Saddled a tornado like nothing can stop it
I jumped down, only touched the first and last stair

I climbed to the mountain's peak
I dove in and swam with the sharks
Got knocked down and got back on my feet
I fell in love, threw a couple of stitches on my broken heart

Every statement I make might not be literal
But in my mind and heart, it's exactly what I've done
This world is visceral
But you can find me out here, having fun and getting work done

I'm an elemental force of nature
If you don't believe in me, I'm not worried; you will in time
In my world I do control my destiny, I'm my own maker
And I think I'm doing just fine

After I'm long gone and dead
And even if only through my brethren
I plan to live on forever
By the songs they sing of me through campfire legends

    Not only did you grab the bull by the horns, you took all he had to give and still he bows to you. Great write Luke. ; )
