Sometimes I get carried away

Parachuting across my life

Dangling from a thread

Legs kicking happily beneath me

The view is breathtaking from up here

Wind currents carry me to new highs

I soar above the sordid elements

Can only touch the sky

Run my toes through cotton clouds

Catch raindrops with my tongue

Gravity always pulls me back

Grabs my legs and jerks me down

Spectacular blue replaced by dingy gray

Feet walk in soot, head swirls with smog

Sun doesn’t shine here and birds don’t fly
