Child

ChildTell mewho has a lien against your soulwho owns this placewhere you dwell in such uncertaintiestis you childyou and yourself aloneif you have no fear of dyingwhy fear lifehave you not seenthose with many armsin and out of the blackwhich is your only realitytouch both the cold cheek and the rosewith the same detachment of infinity and knowthat god dwells within bothand only a breath lay between.Tell mewho owns your thoughtswho reads the look upon your face and claimsto know everything you already knowyou give yourself over too easilyyou follow the parade down fools streetsbless them on their wayand bless yourself to turn.Anger rising from the many choicesspirit hungering for simplicityI have felt you burn aganst my faceeyes bloodshot from loss of sleepI have added to your domain a cloudof senseless worryI have thought the stem between us brokensought to starve you from my time glazed eyesand still you love me despite these thingsa heart of forgiveness we shareI had forgotten.Forgive me childbring me back where I belongmy treasures lie unused within the atticI have gathered much beside that which I hadall along.Sinplicityjoy within the source of beinghappiness which I must be still in seeingforgive me childI was becoming someone else entirelyunravel my illusionsname off my blessings one by one.
