Touch the Sky
Today, you tell me you found what you are looking for.
It’s always been a competition between us,
Who can outrun the other.
I’ve learned that some need to win,
And I am only able to swim to my other shore,
Across my own ocean.
This is my cross to bear,
And I smile because things grow from the ground up.
Sometimes, there is nothing more beautiful than reaching up to touch the sky.
