The Bitter Series

you’re willing to bet

You believed in me when I didn’t
You nudged me along when I was stuck
I don’t think that’s just luck
You’re the spirit in that duck
And the life force to nature’s creation
You’re the largest eternal nation
And a piece of you has rested in me
It wasn’t until with open eyes I began to see
You challenged me for a reason
And loved me through every season
Just as I planted a seed in your soil
Our connection will never spoil
Like an everlasting love coil
Together we shine
And remind each other we are the divine
I see you in every sign
And feel you in our forever bloodline
Caught in this universal net
From the day we met
To the day this life is set
You’re willing to bet

you’re probably right

Life is short, you’re probably right

Life is more than this lifetime, you’re probably right

Your destiny is in your hands, you’re probably right

Your dreams only remain dreams, you’re probably right

You are a fragment, you’re probably right

You are the infinite Universe, you’re probably right

Love is all there is, you’re probably right

This reality is just an illusion, you’re probably right

I am your mind’s eye, you’re probably right

I am who I choose to be, you’re probably right

Because whatever you believe, you’re probably right


you’re in my head every night, every night

Memories and flashes
Fire and ashes
Reality crashes
This horizon clashes
The light and the dark
Battle for who makes their mark
The night wins this race
And it’s the dream I can’t wait to face
I lay my head to rest
Thoughts swirl about today’s part in my quest
I feel blessed
Upon this universal test
There are days I ace
There are days I rely on my foundational base
But every day, I have this pillow and bed
Awaiting my head
And a story I haven’t read
I enter the dream dimension
My reality’s extension
I feel my higher self seeking my attention
Letting me ride this ascension
This cycle repeats
Each time I embrace these warm sheets
The Universe and I have many little visits or meets
Beyond sight
Through light
Quite bright
You’re in my head every night, every night

  4. I wouldn’t dare to pick a favorite for all of them are such profound beautiful. Yet if I were to put a finger feeling on one, I pick the first one, it just captivated me with its rhythm. I loved the second because it felt familiar and it flowed so well from the first and then into the third. Amazing job Ace!!!

  5. This is wonderful, and I totally feel like I get this… keeping the vision, keeping the faith… definitely what you do best! It’s absolutely positive and great. Hard to choose… but I guess I’ll choose the first one. Also love the third one though. :)) Rock on with the wonderfulness!
