Literacy of Up Above The Sky
Life is what makes you busy. It is the existence of an individual human being or animals. The biggest fear of human life and animals are dying.
No one can escape death. Everyone faces it. Make your life the most of it. Cherish every moment you have, whether it is good or bad. Because as the saying says, YOLO-you only lives once.
If you are struggling, don't hesitate to call for help. You may not know who is willing to help you, but for sure I know, there is one willing to. If you are depressed, don't be afraid to ask someone to talk. Because in life, you are not alone in your battle.
You may not know your purpose in life right now, but I know someday, you will know it. Finally, you will realize life is worth living for. Hold on. Don't give up and keep on moving.

What’s the meaning! What’s the meaning!
Life, I couldn’t find.

Up above the sky,
I wanted to fly,
Not to skip life,
But to learn how to survive.
Is anybody out there?
Why does no one hear?
I keep calling,
All I hear is the phone ringing.
Nobody cares me at all
Am I dull?
Why is no one there when I need them?

Oh, sky, sky, sky
I want to fly,
Like a butterfly.
