Issue 1: Chase McCartney

Down In My Heart

My pumping heart worries about what's to come
My gut urges me onward not expecting any
questions about why I must

My mind, deciphering the body's requests, tells me 
think for yourself... Loud-mouthed organs scream
in opposition…

Raw feet carry me on a jagged path,
rushing me heavenward; Gods on gilded thrones
watch this violent dance, take note of what's to come…

I might be bitter from fate, I might be better off
giving up, my body so fragile, alone in this battle––
Nothing can stop the heavy rain I will bring down.

--Chase McCartney
