Soar High


    spinning movements
 in space and time
trapped  in a cyclone
two forces
in a tug-of-war

 down under
 gravity pulls me
to drink myself
in oblivion
soul drenched in pleasures
calloused wings dropped me down

up above
 the harp plays
cherubs chant
 hymns of hope

the Supreme's love
 raises me up
from the heavens
a glimmer of light 

soar high
 never give up
never fly down
