To Whom It May Concern,

These things we call important

are really nothing at all Jared.

You are born, you live as best you can

but there will be things happen to you.

There will be deep cries in the night

to join in with the bliss of the next day.

There will be tears to fill the sea twice.

Yet in all those tears none of it matters

when it comes down to how you see you.

Do you see yourself covered in sorrow?

Do you anger at the slightest slight?

Will you let your emotions bury you

or will restraint and gentleness be yours?

Mine is a fire my heart and I lasso it.

Bloodied and bruised I let it seethe

then I rest in calm and set it free. 

For here I can find that rage and despair,

stomp it out and define my existence.

See yourself now and know in part

inside you a mind needs also a heart.
