Birds on a Wire
There we are – hanging in the balance,
talking about the struggles we face.
High in the sky, we search for solace
and make each other slow the pace.
I do not know how I got here,
but I know it is best for me.
High in the sky, I show no fear;
I stay in a place that is so free.
We all suffer from different pains
and how we continue is a mystery.
We all look at people and at things
and make sure to impact history.
The flight I traveled has taught me
how to love no matter the weather.
The life I have lived made me see
it may get bumpy, but it gets better.
Birds on a wire, we chirp away
to remind each other how to love.
Birds on a wire, we face the day;
and bless skies with sounds from above.
