"You never know if you can fly unless you take the risk of falling." -Nightwing


Lights flash throughout the tent

Popcorn and peanuts created the scent

There was a family of three

The grandest performance the audience will see


Dear Grayson, you are my shining star.

With you, my hands are never tied.

The first day we met we were eight

Our news, out of date.


Two nights ago, your parents fell.

Mentally you did as well.

Just like Caesar

This is the night your parents died.


Lights flash throughout the tent

Popcorn and peanuts created the scent

There was a family of three

The grandest performance the audience will see.


Each year you’d visit, tears in your eye.

Graves dug up, the day you met Bruce Wayne

Emerging as Robin with justice your aim

Fighting with Batman ever so sly


Lights flash throughout the tent

Popcorn and peanuts created the scent

There was a family of three

The grandest performance the audience will see


Dear Grayson, you brought me here

To Bludhaven, where our life can begin

Where we have a hand in

The battles that appear.

Lights flash throughout the tent

Popcorn and peanuts created the scent

There was a family of three

The grandest performance the audience will see

This is a free-verse/ballad poem I wrote during my creative writing class. It is dedicated to the Hero Nightwing (also known as Richard Grayson *or Dick Grayson*)

Love the refrain of the "family of three" . I feel a little confusion about the Batman Robin thing
