Poem - Falling Falling

Updated on April 22, 2013

intro

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......

      thanks Brenda.. I never ever found out and yes it bothered me as do many of the images I see all around me.. perhaps this why poets die (relatively) young.. lol...

      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

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

      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
