No Pretender

Listening to a Foo Fighters playlist and burning a candle in memory of Taylor Hawkins, I wrote this in his memory

No Pretender

In my dazed disbelief, I watch my heroes die one by one and here I stand on ever ready, ready to complete my sentence one tick of the clock at a time, what if I say I aint ready to give up, what if I swear not to go into that cold dark night with a whimper, what if I say I’m gonna go flying fast and screaming loud like a mad, rabid dog in a fight from Hell!

I will not surrender, I’ll never surrender, I aint no pretender!

The pages I stamp with my life, the energy I raise will never die, I will never die so accept me or swallow me like a bittersweet poison pill because I refuse to surrender till my body, I render to the dirt, but I will never die,

I will not surrender, I’ll never surrender, I aint no pretender!

I know the enemy is the gates, I know death waits for me and what if I say I aint ready to give up, what if I swear not to go into that cold dark night with a whimper, what if I say I’m gonna go flying fast and screaming loud like a mad, rabid dog in a fight from Hell!

I will not surrender, I’ll never surrender, I aint no pretender! by Sarah Schultheiss
