Let me  lift you up

Not on a pedestal but to a higher plane

A place where you can see how far you’ve come

Where you can let go of the anxiety of how far you’ll go

It’s not easy being you when you’re fighting not to be me

So much value hidden behind the veil

The strength of a nation waiting to wage war on your fear

With victory in sight, let me elevate you

See what I see and ignore the shadows that threaten your light

I want to take you higher than this, but first you must breathe

Your panic us predictable but unwarranted

I can take you nowhere with cement blocks on your feet

So I leave you here, exactly where you didn’t want to stay

Call when you’re ready to face what may be

Until then, you’re lost in the circumstances of what is
