Poem - Falling Falling


I found this image browsing and it stayed with me and probably will for a long time... here is a little poem....

I fell from the sky

was I alien or another jesus nuisance

but where was mama and papa

I cried and cried for them

but they did not fall

now it is me, just me,

at nights I wonder why I came from the sky

did mama and papa land somewhere else

sometimes I am so alone

I wish to fly

in the sky

and be no-one,

nobody, nothing......

I can fall over a match stick.

I am impressed that I am still in thje marmalade. I thought better and better would have pushed to the bottom of the pile

The picture is very thought provoking isn't it? One wonders what happened after the fall....

Hey Cindy thanks for the comment, they probably lived happily ever after,  (but on the ground floor) this is what I need to believe... Drax
