Something Special - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Something special I want to be
A bird to soar above the sea
I’ll spread my wings to their reach
Fly beyond the walls and be free
Something strong that has great might
No simple missile, gun or knife
My armor shine would be truth
My glory crown a servant for you
A flame for justice and things right
A lighthouse to beam belief and inner sight
Someone who had thought and yielded flight
A person who spoke God and coming night
I’ll plant a new garden right over there
Crop a field of corn, strawberries and pears
A tear to repent my passed regrets
To fears for tomorrows pests
My virtue towards others would be my goal
My goodness a gift to you from its mold
A statue without chip to stand for you
Life without plots, scams or tricks to you
Something special
To be commended
In that astonishing
Sort of way
