Once upon a time I knew who I was
I thrived and flew like any bird does
I drank Earth’s air with water coursed veins
I was high above the sludge filled drains.
But a blink, all it was, that curved my path
Set now in darkness, hugged by self-wrath
Unsure of which road feels less travelled
Since the warmest one can’t keep me saddled
With loose dreams in my pocket I seth forth once more
As a last resort effort to peek at my core
But nothing, it seems, can break down that wall
Which restrains too many and governs us all
I plead for my sanity, my brains, and my heart
For a question answered, for a fresh, new start...
