Earth-bound; we envied the birds in the sky
And wished we can swim swift like a dolphin
Even if doors be shut, we could walk in;
Or go back in time, perhaps never die!
Children we were once; we wanted to fly
Be superheroes, have powers within
Races, contests, all battles we shall win
Live forever, laugh always, never cry!
Then we grow up, recognize our folly
Mundane all our lives; we soon discover
Yes, some of us sink to melancholy
But we bounce back; life is never over
Heroes we’re not, but if we are Godly
Earth-bound we aren’t; we’ll live forever!
