Paper Airplane - Poem by Sophia White

I've made a paper airplane
With wings of Crayola blue
I made it just for me
To fly away with you.

To fly away from this old world
With all its storms of tears
I made it out of cardstock
So it should last for years.

Goodbye, all you people
Who fill the world with hate.
I'm flying off to happier lands
Before it gets too late

'Cause then I'll be a goner
Drowning in your lies
So now I think I'll fly away
And explore the foreign skies.
