Getting where I'm going seems like struggle,
maybe it really is, but what I learn
in looking back is that I glean and juggle
those things I want, and those for which I yearn;
boiling these pots and not letting one burn.
People always seem to ice my runway
prompting me to slip and slide and crash
just as earth and my feet begin to splay,
they hurl at me bullshit and balderdash,
despite it I take off with much panache.
My flight is meditation in the air
a never-ending journey, I'm reborn
far from money and its green despair,
far from people, safe from shame and scorn
tethers torn now I am free, airborne.
