I Won’t Let Go! I Will Defy Gravity!

By The Veer Union

“Defying Gravity”

Heavy is the heart I’m holding
(it’s holding me down)
With the weight of the world with no wings
(I’m stuck to the ground)

What was once a dream?
Is lost inside a scream?
I just need the energy
So I can fight the enemy in me

(I won’t let go, I won’t let go!)

I’ve been six feet underground
Fighting to be found
But I won’t let go
I won’t let go!
I’ve been locked inside a cage
Left to rot away
But I won’t let go
I won’t let go!

(I will be, defying gravity!
I will be, I will be defying gravity!)

This is not a revelation
(It’s what I’ve become)
This is just a destination
(To where I belong)

So I will right the wrong
And rise up to the sun
I just need the energy
So I can fight the enemy in me…

(I won’t let go, I won’t let go!)

I’ve been six feet underground
Fighting to be found
But I won’t let go
I won’t let go!
I’ve been locked inside a cage
Left to rot away
But I won’t let go
I won’t let go!

(I will be, defying gravity!
I will be, I will be defying gravity!)

(I will be, defying gravity!
I won’t let go… I WON’T LET GO!!!)

I’ve been six feet underground
Fighting to be found
But I won’t let go
I won’t let go!
I’ve been locked inside a cage
Left to rot away
But I won’t let go
I won’t let go!

(I will be, defying gravity!
I will be, I will be defying gravity!)

I fell into the fire,
Then stepped into the storm
The truth is but a liar
The day that it was born
I’ll erase the lies within
To find the truth again

I will be, defying gravity…

I will be defying gravity!!

There are those moments in life, when I become weary and heartsick. Tired of what seems to be an unending battle for every little forward step I try to take on behalf of my son and others. I feel so sore, with an ache that spreads down deep into my bones, and every movement brings pain … and I weep for all the wrongs in the world. I don’t understand (and will never understand) why people hurt people, when we’re all suppose to be ONE. We’re suppose to care about each other, to protect each other… to only do good unto and for each other.

I am resting right now – just a little while along this path called Life.

And then I will pick myself up again and move – one step at a time… down the road – until I meet up with YOU.

I hope you’re looking for me too.

Breathe

I love ALL types of music and it’s something that you’re going to have to put up with! My particular favorite is Rock – all of it.

It’s about the message in song (that “feeling” and connection) and how it all comes together; the interpretation and the essence. It’s the beat and the rhythm. It’s the pace of a person’s heart, in repose or racing.

Music allows me escape from a hectic and sometimes sad and scary world. It inspires me and keeps me moving forward. Music keeps me strong.

Music takes me into a world of creation and then, suddenly, I can see and feel the magic of all the possibilities – that I never would have considered before. It’s breathtaking.

It’s a quiet, cool Fall night. It’s been a day of small accomplishments. I’m okay. I hope that you are too.

Breathe …. never give up. Never quit.
