Reach For The Sky


Reach For The Sky 
street_art_1_3d
Street Art  Davic
If we could put our head in the clouds, 
When our world become too loud, 
Could we use this as an escape, 
So our ills could evaporate? 

If we could stand way back, 
Could we cleanse societies plaque,
Clear up the unwanted debris, 
Allow our children to play free?  

If we could reach for the sky, 
Would it dismiss our earthly woes goodbye, 
Release us from financial cuffs, 
  So global markets let us pay just enough? 

So play in the clouds 
Where dreams are allowed, 
For if we lose all hope, 
This world won't cope 
 So Reach for the sky 
 Go on just try !

  3. I seem to live most of my waking life in a daydream in the clouds in the sky. Sometimes it's a much kinder, compassionate place to be, too.
    Lovely prose.

  12. It is the woes propel us rise above. It is what is left within us when we've given all we have.

    I like your poem very much. It got me thinking.

    Cheers!
