Inconvenient Ability To Fly


How does it feel to fly?
Seeing all
From above
Being so high
Just like a hawk or a dove
Up there in the sky

But you mustn’t stay
That much
Up there on the air
Believing this is trusty
Trusting this is fair
The here-down issues are a waiting
For you to go down
Even the hawk and the dove
Descend to the solid ground
Cause they have here-down issues too
That must be resolved
On the little towns

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
