Earth-Bound

A Sonnet
 
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!
