Looking Down

Mon, 08/21/2017 - 07:37 -- RosaB88

I am standing at the top,

But I am not looking down. 

I hear the world beneath my feet,

But I am not looking down. 

Instead I see the sky above,

And I am not looking down. 

 

The sky above is empty and void,

But I am not looking down. 

The world is full of color and noise,

But I am not looking down. 

I prefer the great blue sky,

So I am not looking down.

 

The sky is slowly blackening,

But I am not looking down. 

The darkness envelops the blue,

But I am not looking down. Lightning flashes before my eyes,

And I am not looking down.

 

The sky is dangerous,

But I am not looking down. 

The world holds peacefulness,

But I am not looking down. 

The sky has a strange allure,

So I am not looking down.

Our world
