Comeback  Flight

 

 

Twas nothing trite wasn't looking for a fight

but I sure found what I was looking for

 

Can't ignore I was reaching for some new cure

Until I leaped on through the open door

 

Unrecognized - blinded by the light

Lost my sight but I came upon so much more

 

Not the man to be daunted by such a jam (who I am)

I looked up to the heavens

but I was starin' at the floor

 

Still I couldn't find

a reason or a rhyme

to be writhing in such pain

Cast aside in time

 

Seething through the hours - horrors so sublime

Came to my senses - no longer defenseless

A just reward for those who never stop tryin'

 

It was late at night

the pain was leavin' me uptight

Until I willed myself to let on out a lion's roar

 

I scared myself alright

Nearly vanished clear from sight

Not a bite or a sign was I ready to ignore

 

 

 

Comeback  Flight

 

I'd come on back from the edge

wasn't cravin' for revenge

I gazed at me in the mirror

sans the evil dredge

 

Reeling from new heights

soaring with the light

I took comfort in the fact

I'd returned intact from my flight

 

(it was all gonna be alright)
