My resolve begins so subtle

Gently nipping at your feet

Softly stroking like a whisper

Tugging like a tempting treat

Pulling you in my direction

Begging you to come my way

All you have to do is nothing

All you need is to obey

Just give in, don’t try to fight it

Fall in line like all the rest

Save your energy for later

Settle now my new conquest

Struggling makes you exhausted

Feeble as your limbs go weak

Gasp for air as you go under

Your conclusion’s looking bleak

I will never break or waver

I will never sway or bend

My supremacy is constant

Everlasting till the end

Now you drift like all the other

Floating through reality

Flowing as I push you forward

With the rest of the debris
