Fly Away

– Paulix8
– Paulix8

I long to fly in the sky
To soar up the cliffs with the others
Free me from the bondage of poverty
Rift the cage so I can get out to freedom
Cart me out to a world where I’m welcome
Free me from hunger as seen from my rickety legs
I’m all flesh and bones, so please give me some bread
I’m baffled – why can’t I be just like any ordinary child?
The absence of responsibilities, worries and hardship
To be able to sustain a world full of innocence and fun
Being able to chatter instead of stuttering in fright
Give me love and I can understand that in any language


Fly away, fly away
I’m always on my way
This way, that way, it doesn’t matter
What’s important is I’m basically very able
To try one thing and if it doesn’t work
I’ll try something else and do more legwork
Until I find one that works and I’m satisfied
The trial and error gives me a sense of pride
I know this attitude can get me worldwide
As well as it keeps me occupied
Always an adventure I’m after
Some questions to answer
What’s on the other side?
I’ll go and find my guide
So fly away, fly away
On such a lovely day
