I Wish I Could Fly up Into the Sapphire Sky

Author:

I wish I was a bird

I wish the scars covering my body would turn into feathers

I wish my eyes could see the ultraviolet, those bright colours

I wish I knew how to make a home from broken sticks

And how to rebuild when that home is torn down by cruel hands

I wish I could sing proudly and just maybe someone would listen

I wish my lead bones would turn into hollow pipes

I am sick of dragging around this heavy, weary body

I wish I could fly up into the sapphire sky.
