(with Broken Wings) , Somehow Fly - Poem by Liz Munro

They say you should stay positive
and not into sad thoughts give,
and when you only get one life,
to the full is how they say you should live.

But on top of the world i feel today
i don't feel sad, or lonely
to everyone i say G'day,
But the people around me are soo cold, and stoney.

They try to hold you back from who you want to be.
They try to stop you from reaching that cloudless-blue sky,
By not letting you be free.
Yet they give you crushed, and broken wings,
And tell you, with them, to somehow fly.

    Another good one, Liz. A protest poem from the heart, which sounds like it would be good set to music. I wanted to say much the same thing wen I wrote my poem 'By Degrees'. (Report)Reply
