Flying and Falling

I can't remember why I wanted to fly,
it seemed like I could do anything I try.

Once upon a time the dream seemed real,
but dreams all end and fate is sealed

The earth seemed so hard and dark,
I wanted to be free, to escape it like the lark.

To see the clouds and float along,
to hear the world play a different song.

To be a place where the light surrounds,
to be somewhere that was not the ground.

But the sky was scary and new
and unlike my dream I never flew.

Instead I fell, I could not stay,
now all I want is to go away.

The earth to dark and the sky to bright,
and even as I wish it with all my might,

I have nowhere I can be
There is nowhere for me.
