Chapter 1 – My dream

He is a fearsome, handsome

Bird of prey

Who befriended me and took me away

Heavy under my weightless presence

We soar above city traffic

Night lights up the sky

We rise with the wind

Hovering just above human hate

Our visions merge

The rabbit goes limp

In the bloody claws of the eagle

My eyes are open

Even the winged one must rest

I may not be as strong

Or brave

But I will stand on bare feet

In a naked land

Where men are hanged in muddy water

To carry us through

Oppression and conformity

And other worldly danger
