I mean, I get it
I do not like it, but I get it
Shooting eagles is a pastime you adorn
To help you close the gap between you
And bearers of the sky.
Side note: no-one helps devalue you
More than you do.
The spirit I possess, if left to be defined by others
Borders on self-aggrandizing,
Honestly, I find it hard to care
How many people would you say I need to appease
Before I become me?
None. That is the answer.
I am a shepherd that has learnt to herd his own
Thoughts and emotions, and to me
That is all I need to brandish as a brass ring.
I leave people to their chosen beliefs
Not condemning them if they are indeed different.
Every day for me is a fight you will never get to know
And probing me to tell you all about it is far from the solution
Accept what I let you know about myself
It may be a surprise, but it is far much more
Than I let anyone else know.
