A Lot of Drama in a Little Space

The laws regarding hardship don't compress.
You're on that brutal hook until you're not.
An inner grip on self can blunt distress
and clarify those chains in which you're caught.

It's sad to say, parfait won't make us strong,
and mama's kisses fail to mend our knee.
What does add clout to clobber mighty Kong,
and bring the zoo asylum sanity?

And here's where love and joy with wisdom's sight
and honor's heart, stand straight as man can be.
This is the seed you are, celestial knight,
your sturdy oak is rooted in Eternity.

Your name is "I", the same as every man.
Your claim, "I am", establishes your right
to elevate above the void and span
those shadows demon Ego claims are light.
