I would rather be…

I would rather be

A cloud–eternally free

Unlike the Sun bound to the Earth

taking a set path each day;

Unlike the Moon bound to the Earth

Showing the same side of its face;

Unlike the stars bound to the Earth

By their place in the sky,

Open to prying eye;

Unlike the birds bound to the Earth

By their desire to come home each night.

A cloud I would rather be–

Eternally free

To fly with the wind;

To be whatever I want,

Not bound to the limits of a form;

Unbound to the Earth…
