Not every man can prove their weight, their worth.
With dreams of wings I am forced to walk.
I wish to become the challenger of my own gravity,
To rise so much higher than fate will allow.

A wall of fate; nothing satisfies.
Just because I defy you, doesn't make me wrong.
The size of my deed will reflect my ego,
Project myself, I must become exactly what I want.

So gravity, I challenge you to keep me down,
I defy you to crush my wings!
In defiance I scream at my fate;
"I'll gain my wings and you'll keep your weight!"
A poem with the idea of wanting to become exactly what you want.

Oh wow I adore this ^.^
It is absolutely perfect.
The inner strength is portrayed so beautifully, defiance right to the very end.
Very nicely structured, it contains so much depths, it is a delight to the eyes.
I love the words you used, like dreams of wings, it is so poetic and renders it even more precious.
The last stenza is pure perfection.
Well done ^.^
