    Beautiful Despair

    You're on the edge of the cliff
    It's over if you want it to be
    You can play your final riff
    And the next day feature on the Daily Bee
    A mindless article for a mindless soul
    Of another man who has lost his soul

    Or you can step back from the precipice
    Consign yourself to the hospice
    Of a beautiful despair that brings forth light
    If you will only put up a fight
    You will find the well from which ideas spring
    A beautiful despair which fits like a ring
