[12] Twelve Elements



Two poles

And a bridge.

The numbers drive me

To seek balance in existence,

To seek truth from all perspectives,

To seek the nature of universal cycles.

I’ll leave at dawn to take my route,

For myself, for the world, but also for you.

Someday you’ll see, they’ll see; I want to inspire you.

I want to inspire the world, and share all my love.

These twelve elements keep me centered. I’ll share with you my love.

[8] Eight is Two and Six


Waking up without your beautiful voice,
But still feeling so in love with you,
Hurts so much when I’m without choice,
Without power to bring us to be two.
Tomorrow I’ll wake with you once again;
In morning’s cold, you’ll warm my heart.
But what lies between’s still what it’s been,
I wonder, how long will we be apart?

[6] Six Days


I didn’t want to go.
I wanted to stay home.
I’ve been trying so hard
But getting nowhere
Trying to make this for you.
Trying to be more than me.

Waking to her beautiful voice,
Feeling so in love with her,
Makes it hurt more
When I have to leave
Even if for an hour
Even if for my health.

Lifting the weights,
It’s a game of numbers.
7 / 3 reps; 16.5 lbs/20 lbs;
4 days stamina + 2 days strength;
It’s also about the pain.
It’s also worth that pain?

Now time to work, right?
Time to get something done?
But I seem to only be
Motivated by tragedy?
Why can’t I make more?
Why can’t I be more than me?

I don’t want to go.
I have to stay home.
I have to be productive.
I have to get somewhere, but…
He offer we take you.
He offers you join our trip.

We’re side by side now,
Watching this crazy world,
Loving this strange culture,
Living as a part of it.
I remember how happy you make me;
I remember why I’m doing this.

[4] Four Hours


The first was filled with shock,
Filled with grief, pain, denial…
We cried, we wish they’d lied,
But we were sure after awhile.

The second held a talk;
There were offers of support.
We promised it would be okay,
Sharing this love of a sort.

The third, I took your words
And I sang them in my heart.
You inspired me so greatly,
So I offer you my art.

The fourth let me remember
Your legacy we’ll forever find:
When life leaves us blind,
Love keeps us kind.

Chester Bennington has truly been one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever known. This is for him.┬áRest in peace, Chester. I love you so much for everything you’ve done. You live on in our hearts.
