I Stand here

I stand here and watch the changing of seasons,

a summer of winters, an autumn of springs,
I stand here in thought, not knowing the reasons,
to the meaning of life, how the caged bird still sings.

I stand here and watch as the years pass me by,

regrets of my past, what my life might have been,
I stand here and muse over one butterfly,
freed from the prison it had put itself in.

I stand here and watch as the dark turns to day,

the first glimpse of sunrise, a shimmer of light,
I stand here and wonder where clouds go to play
would they take me with them when day turns to night?

I stand here on guard while my inner self dreams,

of a world free of hurting, a life blank of stain,
I stand here and lisrten while my inner self screams,
with fear in his eyes and a soul filled with pain.

I stand here alone, memories by my side,

a flood of emotions, bittersweet in my mind,
I stand here unknown with the tears I have cried,
searching for answers in a world where I’m blind.

I Stand here
