I Will Be (Poem – David Bowie Tribute)

I will be strange, extraordinary, different, visionary
in a world that tends to dance to the customary;

I will be epic, unconstrained, unbridled, revolutionary
in a world that forces us to choose just one itinerary;

I will be indescribable, indefinable, evolutionary
in a world that tries to trap souls with the dictionary;

I will be provocative, mischiveous, bold, legendary
in a world where everything is only momentary;

I WILL BE, and you will read it on my obituary
as I fuse with the stars and all that is luminary;

And I WILL ALWAYS BE, beyond the imaginary,
as your hearts become my eternal sanctuary.
