When I Told Them the Sky was Orange
When I told them the sky was orange,
they told me not to be so childish.
But I know that I'm right.
Because every night,
as the people who said the sky is blue go to bed,
I look up,
and I know that because I kept my eyes open,
I can see that the sky is orange.
And when I close my eyes,
and go to bed.
The sky turns black.
But I'm not afraid,
Because unlike the people who insist that the sky is always blue,
I can build stars with my dreams.
