Not a property to be owned, a prize
To be won, an object to gratify
Someone's urges, parameter to apprise
The shallow "respects" of a family.
Not an adjunct shadow to be stripped and caged,
Within walls of dormancy, or threatening
Outlaws to be tamed. Not even a war waged
Against culture, enigma unwilling
To be heard, be known, be shared some warmth with.
Instead, you're valiant, fire and ocean.
Quests and dreams, en route to arms of zenith.
Struggle witnessed by sturdy commotion.
Nourishing, inspiring, like a bard's touch,
Bird destined to fly wild, in meaning's search.
