Looking To The Sky:

Sweet yearning from the depths of my soul.

Blessed is my mind that drinks of this knowledge.

Though stubborn at first, rejecting its hand.

I have learned to accept it as my only salvation.

From the streets which have long been my home.

I look to the skies and the clouds above.

Through my skills I shall rise, so I may catch the stars.

Even if the journey might be as heavy as stone.

I have read this one several times now (so no 5 min of wisdom:P ) and I finally understand it! You have a very complex way of writing that still is completely right. In this poem you use a carefull way of expressing things which I like. It makes the meaning of it even deeper in my opinion.

Will for a certainty use this one as inspiration when I feel down again

I was pondering upon your poem and the part about catching stars and such reminded me really of this artist:…

She has a certain lightness and humour to her work that makes her very awesome
