Let’s say one day you take a piece of paper and a pen and you begin to write something on it. You’re careful not to smudge the writing, so you let it sit for a while, so the ink could dry.
The you begin to fold the paper and make an aeroplane out of it. You get to your window and close your eyes and throw it out, not knowing where the wind would take it, but somewhere deep inside, you hope the right person will find it and somehow it would matter.
What would you write?
I spilled the ink across the land
Trying to spell your name
Up and down there it goes
It hasn’t flown the seven seas to you
But it’s on its way
It goes through the hands
Then to someone else
To find you girl
(Paper Aeroplane by Angus & Julia Stone)
