" I am.....?"


I am young but old

I wonder what it feels like to fly

I hear the whisper of a butterfly's wing

I see the colors of the wind

I want to go to heaven one day and see my grandma

I am young but old


I pretend to be an eagle high above the clouds

I feel the whispering of the wind

I touch a tiger's teardrop 

I worry that one day he won't need me anymore

I cry over an animal's death

I am young but old


I understand that I will see my grandma again one day

I say that Jesus is real

I dream of soaring above this sad world

I try to do my best and be kind

I hope to one day have children

I am young but old
