on top of the world - jed cha

When I pick up Mom's phone I see my face in a photo

Younger and shorter, a warrior

Holding an icicle-shaped sword with my older brother next to me

Smiling while letting out a war cry

Standing on a path between

A huge, booming waterfall and

A cool radiating ice wall

Dressed in a warm blue and black jacket

Looking fierce, waving my fake, frozen sword

Standing like a champion

On top of the world

Like a dot on the earth

I wonder if I will always remember

The moment when I held the icicle

The warrior I always wanted to be
