SPREADING MY WINGS
      
I am the captain of my own destiny
One humble and tiny
However over the oceans I spread my wings
And in the ball-room I practise the best swings

My map is hidden
Within a place - forbidden
I applied for a license
To unveil one essence

I did not obtain planning permission
To construct my desired mansion
A little bird came whistling to me

Be patient Magie
I became resilient
But remained a civil guardian
Wore my different caps
To absorb the heavy downpours from
various taps

Yet my dreams
Are beautified within colourful beams
I am flying in very thin air
To confirm my flair

 Shadows must have an ending
 My outward sense befriending
 That my inward vision be clear
 So as the great sacrament revere
