The Life Of A Balloon - Poem by colours true

Starts as a peice of rubber in a factory,
Then moves onto a childs playtoy,
two choices in life,
be popped or...,
fly away,
This particular balloon hadn't chosen before life chose for it,
Out of the hand,
Out of the window,
Over the Garden,
Over the park,
Overlooking the world,
Eventually reaching the seafront,
Starting its long journey,
That baloon wanders...,
Over seas,
Over mountains,
Over trees,
Over cities,
That balloon wanders...alone.
