    Was sleeping awake when this poem suddenly unfolded in my mind one night..

    '''''
    "...Steel Sky"

    I cannot fly
    I am trapped beneath a steel sky
    I cannot cry
    Still teardrops of true blood falls from my left eye


    Droplets striking ground with high velocity
    Do not want fame, but I do not want anonymousity
    Dream of heartfelt generousity
    Not seeking eponymousity


    A pure deed
    A world where people consider the next man's need
    A gesture without prioritizing own greed
    Justification fights on and I pray it succeed


    If I cannot fly, then please let me sing
    I dream the words will carry on like the flutter from a butterfly wing
    In a single heartbeat you define a living thing
    Dreaming of that poisonous sting


    The hurt fueling my inner fight
    The break of dawn a winner delight
    Toxication lifting me on a sinner flight
    Dancing with the devil tonight


    Amidst darkness there is only light
    Amidst braveness there is only fright
    Amidst wrongness there is only right
    Amidst blindness there is only sight


    I cannot fly
    I am trapped beneath a steel sky
    I cannot cry
    Still teardrops of true blood falls from my right eye

    Have a great new year celebration folks, see you in the new decade.
