The Theft of the Sky

Humans fantasize about flying,
and curb our freedom of flight!

God gave us the sky,

humans stole it for fun and travel,
relocating us to the cage,
tearing the gift of wings Providence gave us!

Stars, be prepared to protect your shine;
clouds, be in firm control of your destination;

and we pray to God,
not to give wings to humans,

and to foil their efforts at tweaking
the natural design,

since today we can have
a glimpse of the firmament.
