I wrote this for the Pond Poetry picture of a flower blooming through a cement crack.
I Wish I Could Fly

There are dark clouds all around me
I know it's going to rain
No tree to shelter from the cold
Nothing to stop the pain.

I'm in a different world now
But I think of where I've been
And though things are mostly known there
Again I must begin

To build for me a brand new world
And to make my life a bliss
To make it all seem wonderful
Forget the things I miss.

And all those people who I love
The ones with whom I have grown
Do not recognize how I feel
Or that I'm all alone.

So now I wander through it all
My lonely tears that I bleed
My mind that's empty with no thought
For friendship that I need.

I watch my life pass through the sky
Oh, how I wish I could fly.
