Look In The Sky

Look in the sky, I think its a bird a plane. No It's superman.
And if you had my vision you'll see the purple haze in the sky.

So look in the sky, my friend you will start seeing things that are not there.
So when I take a look at you, I can feel the pain that I held in all those years that I was with you.

But when you look in the sky, you can see everything insight.
So let me know, if you start seeing things that are not there.

So I started to walk somewhere, not sure where I was heading. Just knowing that I had a place to be.

Everyday was a struggle to be myself, when I see my reflection staring back at me.
(I start to cry inside)

So when I take a look in the sky, I can see things that are not there.

Maybe it was that day, that she left me. I almost lost it, loosing my mind.
Then I knew I was going to break down and cry.

The rain was pouring hard that night. But when that sun comes up, I am going to look in the sky and start to see things that are not there.

'We never belonged to you. You never found us. It was always the other way round' - the concluding lines of the poem are overwhelmingly convincing!
this good poem is the equivalent of a knock upside the head. it expresses the assertion of every native-american spirituality i'm aware of which is, in turn, reminiscent of the biblical assertion, the earth is the Lord's. -gk
You own nothing. You were a visitor, time after time climbing the hill, planting the flag, proclaiming........................ flag it high. It's poetry which can show us the reality of real life. Thanks for sharing.
The birds take back their language.. great write
How very true this is! Our scriptures also confirm that nothing belongs to us. We are all tenants and everything is just an illusion; now here, sometimes there...Lovely poem.
