Artist's Description

Charcoal on paper

Shoaib’s writing piece -

What were we? …Seeds
Lost in our own worlds floating free
And honestly
That’s just how I wanted to be…
But whenever I think of you I’m thankful that I know
That seeds grow

Protected with our thick skins
To save ourselves as we float alone
Not dying when the seasons change
So we can pick up again and continue to roam
But we both know this world’s so cold
How long will we go to find our home…
Wrap me around you

Where were we? Where we wanted to be
Fine with floating in the breeze
And honestly
That’s just how we wanted to be…
But whenever I think about you I’m thankful that I know
That winds blow

Protected with our thick skins
To save ourselves as we float alone
Not living even as the seasons change
So we can pick up again and continue to roam
But we both know this world’s so cold
How long will we go to find our home…
Wrap me around you

When did we become rooted in each other’s needs?
When we heard each other’s pleas
And honestly
When we realized that together we could grow as our own trees
And now when I look at you I’m thankful that I know
That leaves show

How you have grown
Between my branches
And now I can’t let you go
Baby this world’s too cold
To face alone
When you look me in the eyes… just know
That in me you’ve found a home

Wrap me around you
Wrap me around you
