The Next Step

As I travel to a new land
I hope deep inside for something grand
Anybody would want it in my position
But not many really understand me.
I want to homeward run
But I was not allowed to be so free
I am a captive of time
Destined for something different
Destined somehow to climb
This mountain the world has so bent
I will prevail
I will never give up
When the skies hail
And defenses fail
I will survive
Soon to be alive
