"Free As a Bird" (A Ray Lewis Poem)

„Free as a Bird“ (A Ray Lewis Poem)

You weren’t born a bird, but you were born to be great,

to bring hurricanes to the bright sunshine state,

and quickly move on to the brightest of stage

to write your own fable, to fulfill your fate

so they praised you for plays in the depths of December,

as you guided your flock back south for warmer weather,

they called you their king, bound by the purple forever,

but I see a heart, black as raven’s feathers.

For you fought and you battled, to achieve your main goal,

You silenced your scoffers, you won the big war

but in the war of the streets, 2 lives were the score

and though you gained the trophy, you gave up your soul

so caged by your actions, with no chance to flee,

you escaped from your bindings, and now you fly free,

you fool a whole nation with gospel from your beak,

but all that I hear is a crow’s guilty plea.

you now roam the skies as an acquitted felon,

and devour your prey with your ring in your talons,

demanding the world call you a model and legend

so they may forget your lies and your past sins.

who am I to judge, just a bolstering critic,

they say it’s half of the story, that I’m being a cynic

that it’s all just a ploy or a self-serving gimmick,

that it’s not how you start, but more how you finish

and it’s true I can’t judge, for I’m no judge or juror

but in the court of the People, I’ll take it one further,

cause Lord knows I’ve been watching, and so is said by the birder,

„when your company is crows, it’s nothing but murder.“

by Alexander Camp

I hope everyone understands that this is an opinion where I am not claiming to know the exact situation of the murder claims. I am merely giving an artistic opinion on the circumstances surrounding the career of Ray Lewis and the accusation and involvement in the murders that took place in Tampa Bay, FL in 2000.

I hope you can see this subjectively no matter how harsh or bias your own opinion is, for I respect and encourage your thoughts and opinions as much as I would want my own to be respected and considered. Thank you, and I hope you enjoy the poem.
