Sitting On a Rainbow

Sitting on a rainbow
Things look different
From up high there
Are many roads
There are no road
Maps to life though
If you find a map
You know it is man made
For you were not born
With it and many moons
Ago you would not have
Been equipped to understand it
The language was unknown
So you do know there are
Many roads and many
People who will travel under
The clouds, some even over
The clouds but few will
Ever sit on a rainbow
Sharing the view together.
