The plane must stay up, the pilot is in control. One fatal mistake and it's crash and burn.
I'm licensed to fly this life,
I've flown it through much
misery and strife.
Never knew I was flying,
until one day I almost end up dying.
I almost crashed and burned,
this is when I truly learned,
Got to keep this body and soul soaring,
even when life becomes less adoring.
I've seen many crash to the ground,
but I refuse to fall down.
Negativity destroys ones ability to soar,
one reason to keep it outside the door.
a good parachute if I wreck.
Plane has plenty of fuel,
so I'm ready for this duel.
Bad weather is certainly expected,
got to keep this negativity corrected.
I'm confident I can fly,
even if I'm not I'll still try.
Got to make this long trip,
no time to get stuck on the strip.
But I'm stuck here thinking,
it shows in my inking.
I'm not ashamed of my hesitation,
it's just apart of our human relation.
Fear of crashing has my mind,
still positivity continues to grind.
I'd rather crash to the earth,
than to let fear come to birth.
But fear has born its charm,
still I refuse to let it harm.
Human fragilities afflict,
but I refuse to addict.
Sure is scary and hard staying up,
but it's better than down corrupt.
Crash me and burn me,
beat me and learn me.
But never ever try to hold me down,
fear doesn't stop me from flying around.
Each and everyday defying,
I will still be flying.

|The word brave does not exclude the definition of fear, Grady; as a matter of fact, bravery is courage beyond our fears. You have a strong, positive and powerful attitude which is the parachute that will carry you through all of life's struggles and disappointments. This is one of your best writes that I have read, Grady. It shows a clarity that has risen above the haze.
