Fly Away

I’ve never left the ground.
I just want to fly away.
I want to take on the day,
play, and ease this pain.
I’ve yet to grow my wings.
I’ve yet to see the things
from a different view.
I’m stuck in front of a door,
waiting to open it, to see
what is on the other side.
What am I waiting for?
What could possibly be
holding me back, weighing
me down to a flat ground?
When my wings grow,
I’ll know to just go. Today,
tomorrow, or the next,
I’ll know my life is set.
I can’t wait to fly away
when the sky isn’t grey.

The Stars Above

When I look up, I see stars

race across the night’s sky.

I notice how fast they move.

They come and go. I know

the stars don’t stay long.

Whenever I feel down,

I look up to the sky above

and feel nothing but love.

Time flies like memories,

making moments temporary.

The sky reminds me to be

like every star that I see.

Look Up

Do not stare at your feet
when there is a sky above.
Do not stare and weep
when there is endless love.
Look up and see the sky.
Look at birds dance and sing.
Look up and try to fly.
You deserve everything.
There is a life ahead.
You must get off the ground.
Fly away from all the dread
and away from all the sound.
Look up and chase the sky
before all your dreams die.
Look up and wave goodbye
to me before you fly.

Birds on a Wire

There we are – hanging in the balance,

talking about the struggles we face.

High in the sky, we search for solace

and make each other slow the pace.

I do not know how I got here,

but I know it is best for me.

High in the sky, I show no fear;

I stay in a place that is so free.

We all suffer from different pains

and how we continue is a mystery.

We all look at people and at things

and make sure to impact history.

The flight I traveled has taught me

how to love no matter the weather.

The life I have lived made me see

it may get bumpy, but it gets better.

Birds on a wire, we chirp away

to remind each other how to love.

Birds on a wire, we face the day;

and bless skies with sounds from above.
