Up There

Up There

A Poem by Jonah V. Syx
"

What Is better, Up or Down?

"
Up there.
I wonder what's up there?
I wonder why it's up there?
Maybe I could be up there?
Why I am not is unclear.
Why I am not is unfair.
Maybe life is good up there.
Better living than down here.
I wanna be up there.
Give me ways to get up there.
Can a ladder get up there?
Can stairs get me to up there?
I just wanna be up there.
No more living it down here.
Anyone hear me up there?
Theres no way to get up there.
Maybe thats why Im down here.
I don't need to be up there.
Kind of glad that I'm down here.
When I'm down and I'm down here.
I can only look up there.
Knowing that it's still up there.
Happy that's it's still up there.

Sorry, I know you're probably wondering what I meant by that.

It's okay this was always a trick poem of mine.
This screams to be Wizard of Oz. As I read it all I could think of is "if happy little blue birds fly beyond the rainbow, why, oh why, can't I?" I love that line, probably my favorite in the whole song. I love that this brought that to me. Thank you! Nice job.

Thank you! I'm glad if gave some nostalgia of that beautiful song.
The questions, "I wonder what's up there? I wonder why it's up there?" stands out a lot! I has a great flow to it and I really enjoy. This poem shows a lot of emotions and thoughts. It is a wonderful work of art! I love it! :)
