Adolescent Steps

I’m gentley touching the sky,

so far away yet so close, I can feel it

on my skin, so cold

on the clouds I lie, my eyes wide open

my chin resting on my shoulder, i’m looking down,

I’m on top, No one has ever reached this far

people are barely seen, thousand feet under

I close my eyes and take a deep breath,

here’s to my sky; my beginning, my first step

the urge of flying away caused by distance of stars

curiousity; what’s there to discover ?

It’s like a journey I just don’t have a map for

I have a long way to go

don’t try to catch me because I wont fall

I’ve turned fear and hate into mirage

it was nothing but an illusion my brain filled with

I feel the light, so beautiful, so pure

hypnotised by the beauty, the beauty of the light which radiates

fascinated by my colors, they’re all so bright

suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
