Persuasion/Negotiation Skills

I’m hanging on your every word

So uncalled for, so ridiculous

And yet never absurd

I’m alive to possibilities

You don’t frighten me

I wish we had spent more time together

Way back when

I think that I could follow you

Into fire, into brimstone, and

I know you’d see it through

I can see it in your eyes again

I’m electrified

I think we could decide our own futures

Hand in hand

Look back at how I used to be

I was angry, I was petrified

And now I have a cause

You repaired me, gave me courage

And I wish I gave you more

But it’s not easy

Following the leader

I know you appreciate

The contributions that I make

Such as they are

Such as they are

No I’m not sorry

I will do as you say

It’s not what I want to do

But I’m compelled

And somehow I feel

That I owe you

There’s a debt

To be repaid

I am hypnotised

By something in your eyes

But I’m not terrified

I’ll never fear again

And I have you to thank for that

I’m your soldier

I will worship

And I’ll never fear again

I call you ‘Father’



There are no more names

And you don’t need another

If you did

You know, I think I’d call you ‘Friend’.


About dcduell

Failed musician. Trying to write for TV. Never sure quite where I'm headed. Serial un-funnyman. I used to do a lot of writing. Sometimes I still do. So I decided to put it on the internet. I'm on Facebook and Twitter. Pretty active on the former, not so much on the latter. Holler at me.
