tonight i sleep with the eyes of a shark, the smile of a crocodile, and the tongue of a viper

tomorrow i rise with the strength of a lion, the grace of a puma, and the speed of a cheetah

not always though

i dream with the self worth of a battered child, the eyes of the left behind, the soul of the forgotten

i sink into the clouds of anguish, get lost in the mist of despair, fall deep into the sea of depression

but one day

i shall soar like an eagle, dart across the sands like a jackrabbit, and sing like a songbird

i will write like a true poet, love like a hero from a fable, and live like a man that is good enough

i will

i hope
