I Am

I am a simple man with extraordinary ideals
I wonder at the glory and power I see about me in life’s dance
I hear the piccolo strains of Angel song
I see the godhood emanating from humanity
I want to chain the preterhuman state which is our birthright
I am a simple man with extraordinary ideals

I pretend to see reason in chaos
I feel a need to believe in the supernatural
I touch the souls of those about me – often not lightly
I worry that I will die without becoming who I should be
I cry thinking about grandkids I will never see
I am a simple man with extraordinary ideals

I understand life is hard – and it is well worth it
I say “every damn thing is your own fault, if you’re any good”
I dream of one day flying without aid and knowing all
I try to be fair-minded, tolerant, and accepting
I hope that my life gives others power to excel
I am a simple man with extraordinary ideals.
