I tear away the expectations,
Unanimously glued to me.
I rise from the Earth,
The clay and the hearth,
In which you carelessly buried me.
I rise above and beyond,
And break free from the shackles,
That bounded me from taking flight,
In the open blue skies.
I rise for once and for all,
I rise to see that which is beneath me,
And to look forward to that which is beyond me.
