Push me out!

Tags:

Last night- when the world locked its doors
With me halfway in but pushed out
I cried for the sky was dark- rain almost pouring
There was nowhere to take shelter

Then I suddenly flew up
That force shoved me hard and I found myself above the clouds
I was headed to heaven!
Now I wished I had brought those others, locked out
With me

I was shocked at my own voice
I was troubled no more
And where all these followers came from I did know, dared not ask
Our voices together, shook the earth
Mine was small, but powerful amongst others

Not that I want to be locked out
But do it if you dare- if you can
You make me listen more keenly, open my eyes wider
See what you have been doing all the years past
So push me out- push us out!
