MUH HAH HAH HAH!


If I could tie a swan to my soul,

It would sail forever.

If I could tie a swan to my soul,

Yes, I’d sail into the blue foam

In South America.

If I could fasten my soul to a sparrow,

I would never feel

The crash of dry, dirty earth.

If I could sail away

I would make forests swim in the air,

And I would not grow tired.

No more sad sounds.

Just music.

I want to feel the sky

Free of fear

Beneath my feet.

This was really beautiful, I loved it. Also that thing about the sparrows and sailors is cool, never knew that!

did you know that sailors got sparrow tatoos because sparrows carried your soul to heaven and if they died at sea they didn't want to be sparrowless.
