I look around

The blades between my toes

Shine like emerald combs

I gaze above

The drifting fleece of sky 

Passes over by and by

The solid earth

The safety I know

Holds me close 

The airy sky

The gravitational atmosphere

Keeps me down here

I know home

This town and its people

The shining church and its steeple

I hold possessions

The money I make

My power and strength 

But do I have the courage it takes?

I take hold

Of a balloon bouquet

As night turns into day

I hold tight

To the blue and green

My life tied up in the strings
