My heart dances, while my feet drag.
My spirit is young, even though my body appears to sag.
My mind in pursuit of endless exploration.
Yet my bones speak of exploitation.
Slow down, stop, this human side cries.
Shut up, don’t listen, it’s all lies.
So much to see,
So much left to do.
So much yet to learn.
Oh let this body see me through.
My mind craves to be free of earth-bound restrictions
my conscience still tied to my convictions.
Soaring upwards, ever onwards.
Reach for giddy heights sublime.
