Tied To A String (Poem)

I feel like a balloon, tied to a string
Simple, hollow and carefree

With the wind gently pushing my face
I’m cautiously bobbing away

Far from the war down on the ground
Gaining new perspective in the clouds

I guess we’d all really like to know
Which direction the wind will blow

Personally I’d feel much better
If I were drifting towards warmer weather

Still – I feel like a balloon, clutching a string
Lost, shallow and leaking
