Change is in the air.
A graduation to the next stage will unravel
competence and valor in the vision that captures castle
recruits loyalty or paves a parade path to glory
I'm ready for my close up, so I move it or lose it.
Today I am happy.
My job is done and mission accomplished
of dream fulfilled, my heart will always cherish
providing a sense of relief now that it's complete
this feeling bestowed upon me so great as precious gift.
Tomorrow's another day.
Avant-garde trends set objective to compete for attention
rank or opportunity paying a price for the right action
performing for pride, pinks or personal gain won't hurt my game
but lame stunts or vainglorious preening can blow to inevitable shame.
Accept and embrace the journey I have taken
ambiguity in a rut is a drag so I play to win
or my empire strikes back with a dangerous spin
giving props to a blueprint or back-story of abysmal pain.
