The Sky Poem by Aiesha Freela

It’s amazing the way darkness falls
And the truth out there is cold
That there’s nothing to keep you warm
Jealously and lies within me
I have a feeling, the sun won't shine today
I must know right now
Will I be rich, have everything I want?
I stop myself and look to the sky

I have to give myself up to the sky
The only truth is in the sky

Nobody else can tell because I’m stuck in a spell
Of greed, anger, and hate
I tried, I tried, and I tried to rise above it
But it comes right back
Creeps up on me and hits me, double time

This can’t be my fate,
It’s never too late
I wake up holding on to this pain
And there’s nothing else I can do
But to give myself up to the sky

When you ask yourself “Hey, why me? ” and “Why not me? ”
When you’re down on your knees
Look to the sky, just look to the sky
Don’t need a faster car
Or a bigger house
All you really need is friends and love
Throw up your heart
All you really need is love
