Flying upside down

Flying upside down

If the world was upside down,

we could see the sky from above

and flying could mean falling down.

Birds which dive in the sea,

and fishes which swim in the clouds.

Death would be life

Sadness happiness; war peace.

We could be burnt by water

we could drink fire.

We couldn’t be afraid of crowd

but scared of silence.

We could be born old and sick.

and die as seeds, in the womb of the Earth.

We could care for each other

forgetting selfishness and greed.

We could love slavery

and hate freedom.

If world was upside down

nothing would change

unless we learn how to fly,

lifting up

or going down

watching our life

with different eyes.

Francesco Pistillo 15th May2015
