Only here on holidays
I know, now, I
rarely come around
Got my head up
in the clouds
but this coach seat
has never let me down
I swear,
Not getting’ uppity
just finally found
my ground
Found a way to flex my wings
through this four-year scheme
Dreams deferred are
I grasp them every instant
I’m awake
I’m complete
therefore, I rarely sleep
Rarely wait
in their lines
checked my bag ahead of time
Gone ‘til December and
for Christmas
that 4.0 is mine!

Give H.O.P.E. Live H.O.P.E.
