-Square one-

SQUARE one
If one were a bird, one would fly far away,
Into a land of twinkling lights everyday,
Imagaine leaping into a pool of blue.

Not even a last look or single care,
Tasting that beautiful fresh air,
Just you and the sky dancing.

Into a world of pure blue,
Where there's just you,
Painting life onto a blank canvas.

Happy with the skies you rest and be,
Alone, and lost you cannont see,
You're just floating aimlessly.

This world from afar seemed exciting a new,
But what an adventure for just little you,
The spark of life starts to fade.

Falling down down through the many skies,
You suddenly start to open those tired eyes,
To a world once forgotten.

Time chasing this bird once so free,
Now you gaze up high and see,
You're back to square one, where the journey first begun.
