The Wall of Oval Drops

He thought he could walk on water
Until he almost drown

He thought he could fly
But fear of heights held him down

Eventhough he was wrong
He tried to prove himself right

Should have walked away
But thought he could fight

He couldn’t wait to get older
To be on his own

Walk a straight line
A youth to atone

Everyone said-
A failure you’ll be

You cant chase a dream
When yourself…you can’t see

Blinded by I told you so and
I’ll prove you wrong

He set off into the world
To create his own song

He failed a bit here
And just trudged ahead

Succeeded over there
Gaining traction and tread

In the end, his dream
Didnt involve money or fame

Payback, I showed you
Or laying stake to a claim

It was about knowing
He be ok on the inside

When he followed his heart
Instead of someone else’s eyes
