Gift Me A Wing



gift me a wing
so that I can fly
high, high and high
above all the clutter
beyond every mess
the world wouldn't mind
one inhabitant less

too much have I seen
too many places have I been
yet, the story is always the same
wars and hatred, humanity ashamed
tears lay burnt in ashes of hope
violence is insane, a drug, a dope

gift me a wing
so that I can fly
away to a world
where souls wouldn't cry
build a new tomorrow
erase the gory past
peace would prevail
and love shall forever last

  7. I am tired of praising you SIR. Enough. You are quite intimidating.

  8. Are you sure you don't have wings already? Because you are soaring wonderfully high!.

    This clearly is a masterpiece. I'm so jealous of you, you have no idea.
