A new start

Overnight everything changed
Overnight he reached his range
Overnight everything came to be
Overnight he was finally free

He fought for years for change
But his mind wouldn’t engage
All he wanted was a chance
So his life could advance

Then one day his patience won
Beating the frustration’s gun
Loaded was it, ready to fire
Down his aspirations, his desire

From the fires did he rise
A phoenix that did fly
Up and away to new heights
A new life given flight

All this happened overnight
His dreams were reached overnight
He came to be himself overnight
Finally flying high overnight
