I Will Soar High

Updated on August 16, 2013

I regret to say

or maybe not so much

that I can’t stand

your evil business

no more.

Unexpected I know

for you bargain me so

to put up with all sorts

of meanness galore.

The way I see it

no opinions matter

but yours I know.

So why pretend

you care to think

what others say

or have to do.

Inside the walls

you all are kings

related and bonded

oh so tight.

No outsiders enter

this circle of trust

but others do bid

the dirty sheets they wash

fold them too

put away

as if never a stain

marked your souls.

Without the minions

to carry to and fro

your palace would rust

from the neglect

of the idle

of both body

and mind.

While you make your demands

orders much like barks

stomp your feet

raise your voices,

it is all for a show

that no one cares to see.

We have all been here before

grown old from the time

spent wondering

just how far you would go.

Some sit awake

in darkness

a swift soundless walk

with lone dagger in hand.

But, not me.

When my time has come

no need to seek vengeance

with a friendless God.

I won’t lie down and die

or expect of you the same.

I will soar up high

like the greatest that ever flew.

      This is so beautiful and the truth is real. You can't prevent someone from soaring when that time comes.
