Not Understanding


If I'm supposed to be flying
Why do I feel I'm sinking

If I'm supposed to be soaring through the sky
Why do I feel like I'm being dragged across the ground

Say I'm loved
But by whom

Say I'm cared for
Does it show

Say I've got so many friends; it's crazy
But we just don't hang out

Say I got a schedule with no openings
For what

    Great write and I love the Questions. I do understand. Remember too... that we do not need a mountain of friends, we just need a couple who are true. Well done (Report) Reply

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
