Evolution Revolution

It's a dark night
and I'm hanging in air.
Like an eagle being still
anticipating a kill.
But this monster named fear
has his claws sunk into my back.
I need to break them off
it will turn my spirit black.
It's time to move my wings.
Shred into a flaming phoenix
to melt its claws.
Time to glide around mountains and
light up this onyx black sky.
Time to breath in pure fresh air.
I don't want this feeling to die.
I look ahead and see
flashes of silver lightning waiting for me.
Time to challenge myself again
break away from the norm.
This time I'll shred into a dragon and grow scales
to weather this storm.
I'll even grab lightning bolts
to use as a staff.
To slay all of my self doubt in half.
You see everyone I am in the midst of
And with my words this
dragon will breath fire.

Author's Note
I wrote this years ago when I was in the midst of evolving into a writer.
Always intimidating to put your words out. Next stop a poetry slam.
Wish me luck!!
