If we could fly up to the sky
and reach up to the clouds
and touch the heavens
our spirit would be free
so that we could easily see
that all that life has to offer us
is not good enough to satisfy
our soul
From birth until death
we have and will continue
to hear:
racism, discrimination,
jealousy and deceit
all over society and the world
but we always pray that
we can free our children from
these things
yet how can you block
the world from your children
for when they grow up
they will know
that all life has to offer us
is not good enough to
satisfy our soul
till death comes to free us
that we may fly up to the sky
reach of the clouds
and touch the heavens
