I AM FLY

I am he that stomps the ground,
and grinds the ground,
I am fly,
I care less for niceties,
I couldn’t bother with novelties,
I am fly,
I  glimpse the sky’s tears,
the earth dried off its lament,
I am fly,
stuff happens, we all sing dirges,
I bless fate and
medlies  flow,
I am fly,
I wake at the sun’s yawn
and waltz through the day’s page
dusk smiles sadly,
I am fly,
strangers meet
love choruses,
a new swan song births,
I am fly,
I love my life’s thread,
I answer to no heathen,
my prayer’s my anthem,
I am fly,
I sing lullabies
in my sleep,
suck on my thumb,
wait.
I war with babies’ chants
in my sleep and
steal their innocence,
yet I am fly,
because hell will freeze
over before i give a hair’s
breath,
because i am
fly.
