To spread my wings and sail
was what I wanted to do
To reach the rooftop on high
was where I wanted to climb
To ride the balloons and soar
was where I wanted to flee
But I didn't realize how far away
it was until I fell and hurt my knees
The deep blue sea winked at me,
as I pondered on my direction
Am I fated to be just a simple dreamer,
or to go forth with wind under my arms?
I didn't know myself until I slipped, tumbled,
collapsed, knocked over, along my journey
I thought I was the greatest skipper there is,
but I learned the best of me is still becoming.
My dreams await me, take a look up the sky
