The stars float so high
Shinning for no reason
And ending in brilliance
Not only is their grace, beauty, and passion infused in them
I guess we share that…
When I look up now and see that even something that has it all
Has nothing at the same time.
Flowers will bloom everywhere
In hot and cold
Soft or hard
Like humans, they pop up and stream toward the sky
Knowing they may never get there but try anyway
Do they try so hard to reach the sun
It makes no sense
But aren't I doing it too?
With my big dreams
Aren’t I reaching for the heavens, hand outstretched?
Sometimes I wish I was a feather
Drifting floating spinning
Falling whenever, wherever;
Humans are often told what they can and can't do
It is accepted in normalized without thought
Why do we accept it?
Is it because humans are as weak as sheep
Need to be guided by the dog?
To be saved from the wolf?
Sometimes I wish I was a dragon, so righteous and daring
Roaring throughout the world telling it
I am here
Maybe I would not be so nameless
A nobody then
Maybe people would know my name and I would be somebody
There are billions of people in the world, and it takes something for them
To stand up and notice.
Sometimes I wish I was small fish
Swimming down the stream
Not a care in the world
Humans always have something to worry about.
Sometimes I wish I was a bird
Flying above the clouds
Feeling totally euphoria
Of the freedom that lies beneath my wings as I soar;
Sometimes I wish I was steel
Hard and cold
So I would never be hurt again;
Sometimes I wish I could be and eye
So I could view the world unbiased
Because humans are so quick to judge
Sometimes I wish I was a notebook
So I can help express people's feelings on the page
Because humans can't seem to communicate with each other;
Sometimes I wish I was a pen to write out all the ideas
Right out of the minds of the young artist looking to help through their craft;
Sometimes I wish I was a book
So many characters can help anyone who just tries to read it
Because others can't always be there for them;
Sometimes I wish I was me
And people around me would stop judging
But we are all human
Is this really all we know how to do?
