I Seek Vertical Increase…

image

I’m 31 architectural stacks in the sky,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

To the tips of the trees, as a kid I’d climb,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

“Window seat please”, only way to fly,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

Rotating restaurants and towers worldwide,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

Ascending hills and mountainsides,
I’ve really always liked getting high…

Maybe it’s a spirit within everyone,
Children embracing increase in the vertical.
Unafraid of the climb,
Not concerned about the potential fall.

Maybe I’m just trying to reach God,
In a literal and worldly way.
Reaching for the energy of a sun,
Which emits God’s powerful rays.

Perhaps the literal manifestations,
Have nothing to do with the figurative.

Maybe I simply like to climb?
But, I always have, and still, like to get “high”…

Do you?
