I Wanna be a Fly

I wanna be a fly

that sits on the wall.

To hear what you say

and see all that you do.

The invisible eavesdropper

that nobody minds,

I’ll drop in on you from time to time.

I’ll be like a camera

Taking snapshots of life,

Each scene a short film

That entertains for a while.

I wanna be a fly,

that sits on the wall.

Sate my curiosity

and always know all.

A Dream

I had a dream

That I could fly.

I’d spread my wings

And touch the sky.


I’d swoop and soar

And dive and glide.

I’d loop de loop

and fly so high.


But the thing with dreams,

Although they’re great,

Is they disappear

Soon after you wake.
