Dive Into the Sky

Pattern Recognition ~ Philip Brent Harris


Do you buy self-help books by ones, twos
Or do you buy them by the bloody dozens?
Stop halfway through, dejected, confused,
Yet sing their praises, to friends or cousins.

Do you read the advice, but don’t follow it
And then you wonder why it doesn’t work?
You sought tools to scramble from your pit;
Cold and dark: it’s where your demons lurk.

Cannot you comprehend you are able to fly?
Chains you hear rattling don’t belong to you.
Hold your hands high, then dive into the sky;
Aloft you know this is a skill you always knew.

When you feel lighter than any bird’s feather,
Down to Earth, but flying whenever you will.
Not only can you fly; you control the weather
And any perceived want or need you can fill.
