climbing towards serenity
a distant glance from harmony
longing for eternity
give me wings so I can be free
to sit upon a mountaintop high
and watch the sun set in the sky
and i feel a rain drop hit my thigh
close my eyes and silently sigh
then i open my lids and glance around
sadness consumes me without a sound
the freedom and peace is nowhere to be found
in its place, my tears, dripping to the ground.
will i ever get the chance to soar
the wind in my ears a beautiful roar
and the precious hope of finding much more
the thought is enough to keep me fighting my war.
