MORTAL, I AM
To walk on water is an amazing thing I can not do,
Flying across the sky, never will I fly, a thought from my mind.
Through walls of solid never will my physical body walk,
I have not the power to raise my hands and change the world.
To part the sea is a wonder that I’ve not yet seen,
Fire I can not make rain from the sky, no not I.
I have not the ability to hide from pain,
Fear is an emotion that lives in the human being.
I am not god for it is that I may bleed and do,
I breathe the air but no guarantee of a tomorrow.
Mortal I am, for now here I’ll stand and walk this land,
Older I’ll get as surely I will not live forever in this place.
One day I’ll die and pray that my new home will be beyond the sky.
