>>>> A challenge for you
you may claim the whole earth
her lands and monuments
i leave you all with a request
do not fence the air
i make it the roof
of my home
claim the sky
along the horizons
if you can
but please leave me with clouds
they are my dreams.
you can take away the sun
but i dare you to obstruct the light
falling upon my mind
my venerability may provoke you
to wage a war
and by your sheer strength
you may blow away the cloud
the roof of my house and obstruct the lights
but i dare you to win
and bow my head.
