RealizationI am a ghost.Fading in, fading out of livesThis wind is bitter and unforgivingIt bitesAnd snapsLike a shark.But I,I simply floatLike a crisp autumn leaf.I soar along.That's all.Yes, you fear me.I would know.Why shouldn't you? I'm cold; I'm dead.But I'm not a menace!A monster, yes

SomedaySomedayI will show themThis beautiful personHiding under the fleshI will set free this shining soulFlood the world with its colorI willShow them my rainbow.SomedayI won't be scaredTo stand up to themThe jokersThe hatersThe ones who don't think it throughI won't put up a frontWon't let them hold me downI won'tBe intimidated anymore.SomedayI'll be a lightTo friends and strangers near and farTo the DesperatesTo the Giver-UppersI'll be the oneWho gets them back on their feetI'll beThe push that stands them up again.SomedayI'll have the strengthTo walk my own roadTo stand on my pedestalAnd never fallI'll have the strengthTo come into my ownAnd shineShineBrighter than any city lightBrighter than any star in the clear mountain sky.Someday.Someday.Someday is notNotNot today.
