He performed with incredible confidence, with pupils giving him a standing ovation and not a dry eye among the applauding staff.

Kite, by Maison

I wanna be free, like a kite in flight, I wanna live easy, take the breeze across the many seas I might! Travel the world, see the sights and stop to gaze upon the stars at night.
That’s the life… that I wish to lead verses complex thoughts that I need to heed to aim my frame to succeed in this game of mine. Life on the line, no stop signs on the road to rhyme while I’m in my prime with a path to pave, a soul to save, I’ll keep on digging til’ I’m in my grave.
At least that’s the plan, the follow through is what’ll make’th man, thus here I am… caught in between, like an extra in my own scene, my star role, no roll-call, do I climb the wall or freefall? Because either way will have price to pay, too easy to be led astray by emotions unable to cast away and then its overcast today, trapped in my mind like a castaway.
Wait… let me speak for a minute, my kind of pain, have ya’ll ever been in it? Feeling the need to prepare every conversation, possible combination, in case of potential complications or to never be proud of your quirks, ashamed of your work… and even now I’ve re-wrote this, erased this, replaced this, paused, watching the bar too cautious to place this. That is until I think of the faces, all the fears that you’ve conquered despite all the tears that you’ve tasted its motivating, liberating… I’m tired of running but in too much of a rush to be waiting because…
I wanna be free, like a kite in flight, I wanna live easy, take the breeze across the many seas I might! Travel the world, see the sights and stop to gaze upon the stars at night.
I just wish to do as I do, through thick and thin, the way I see it… to simply persist is a win.
