I’ve built a staircase of validation and I am flying up one step at a time. Only I can see where it leads the only weight it can carry is mine. I ain’t going anywhere but it is. There’s no need for belief or faith, that’s for those unsure of themselves, words speak for themselves I’ve no desire to speak them. All I do is gently touch them lift them in the palm of my hand like a bird learning to fly and set them on their way. They’ll go where they have to reach with or without me, they don’t need my staircase but I’ll build it anyway. I’ll nudge them out of their nest, I’ll prod them till they figure out they can fly.

How can I sleep possibly this moonlit night? Come, my friends, let’s sing and dance all night long. Let’s get drunk, on impending flight!
