Swan Song

She was pretty like a swan
From a land called Taiwan
But among them
She
A rarity
Unique in a world
That stresses singularity
(i suppose, never been there)
Her wingspan was legendary
Too wide in fact
So mocked the other pens
So this swan felt insecure
Regardless, she took flight
Eventually soaring to heights
The hater pens couldn’t  manage
All because of her wide wingspan
i used to try and tell her
“Your wingspan is beautiful
Be proud of that shit”
But silly swan still insecure so
Couldn’t see her own beauty
Sometimes i sit back and wonder
Did she ever grow to realize
Her value beyond a stranger’s eyes

Humming Bird Hyena

Its last words to me

“Choose the girl”

But over what?

I can only guess

Dead men tell no tales

I was spending much time with

My computer then

Maybe (s)he meant

Choose organic over synthetic

In terms of the company I kept

Was this advice born from

Jealousy or sincerity?

Resembling features from both

Fighting Black Bird

Little, black bird it’s okay to cry
To be betrayed
You’ll find is common in life
And I’ve heard your songs
From miles away
Only because you’re strong

But these skies are deadly
Full of wasps and dangerous medley
When stung its
Enough to kill your melody
If u let it, but you wont
Only because you’re strong

The venom will stay inside you but only
For a moment
So own that moment
When you feel low fly high
All the way up till you breech the sky
And as your wings start to buckle
Muscles collapsing from the hustle
Of it all

Rest easy black bird
The winds will guide your fall
Pick a current, any current
Then coast

Autonomous Bird Soars

All my life I’ve been trapped in a cage

This wasn’t how it was supposed to be

I was meant to run free in the plains

So that one day I could soar from the mountains

How can I fly if I can’t get a running start

It’s the men I don’t see who are to blame

And I’ve come to the conclusion

I’ll take back what they stole by force

If I die in the process so be it

I’ll have attained what I always wanted

Complete unyielding freedom

Unbound by  the laws of man and his gods
