Grasshoppers, Dolphins and Eagles

Grasshoppers, Dolphins and Eagles

or go

the question
to be answered
I look to the skies
searching for harmony
but I see clouds of discord
anxiety builds up inside
and suddenly, I want to break free
like grasshoppers jumping in fields of green
like dolphins swimming in the azure sea
I want to soar in crystal blue skies
I want to fly like an eagle
let my spirit carry me

to a place where peace dwells
a place where hope thrives
and we can feel
peace and love
for all
