Solo: 2006

You can sit
You can stand
but I was meant to run
I was meant to fly
High and beyond
any where but in between
Kind of like dreams

you can sit
you can stand
and you did
right upon them
I said nothing
and nothing I did
wings withered, legs weakened
I traded loneliness
for stale laughter
and my light dimmed
to a flicker
so I had tucked myself away

but you still just sat
you just stood
so I ran
soon I will fly


upon my unsteady wings
leaving behind your shadow
leaving you to your negative space
And I am freed
to just be me
to shine my own light
as I was always meant to

So just sit
don't get up
I don't need you
to fly
