staying grounded

Posted to Poetry




some people say,
"hey-
listen to me, brother, stay on the ground.
it might be fun to fly, but its rough coming down."
and i say i can see the beauty in living for the moment.
i can see the beauty in touching the sky,
why stay grounded when i can fly?
why walk around half-dead when i am alive?

she looked at me, all grown up for once
and said ill be driving before you know it.
clear the roads cause ill be zooming down dont cha know it?
daddy's bought me a car and taught me not to drive like a woman.
bein on the highways, being me, well thats gotta be freedom.
and i looked at her, looked her right in the eyes
and said
girl, youre in for a suprise.
and i say i can see the beauty in living for the moment.
i can see the beauty in touching the sky,
why stay grounded when i can fly?
why walk around half-dead when i am alive?
