11.30.10 the rest of your life

the rest of your life

will you let me know
will you find it in yourself
to tell me when
i am subject to the agents of my health
find it in your work to keep me here
when your pride and power all but disappear

and i will not define the rest of your life
but i will stand by

defying the bygone and choosing to be
less like those who follow more like those who lead
for asking your insides how long will it take
before i find a cure to be perfect and pure
or we simply break

and all that's static
completely automatically
changed by the grace of your ways
that you bestow on me
with confidence foreseen
i rise for the rest of my life
