another day of wondering about the meaning of everything
i look up at the sky and stare
see a bird fall from halfway up where it was going.
now it's dead.
like our hopes and our wishes
and our prayers, it flew.
it soared into the sky
and i watched it plummet down. couldn't help but think, that's what
happens to us all.
i'm like that bird, i'm falling apart
soaring up high but i can't keep up
now.
these wings can't keep me up.
