Were You Dropped?

Were you dropped?
Were you dropped by a bird?
Were you dropped by a bird from a great height?

You landed on a rock in a lake
You don't complain, no you make,
The best of what you've got.

Did you crack?
Did you crack on impact?
Did you crack on impact or slip between the gaps and grow?

We all reach for the blue sky,
Reach for the blue sky when it comes,
When it's gone, when it's gone,
We hold on.
