up off the ground

Sometimes I walk in the woods
wander off the path as the clouds descend
and the fog portends of broken whims

The chords of life play a deepening bass
everything shakes and life seems to be
a waste of time and space so effortlessly

when I break down and forget my bounds
I yap and growl and snap and prowl
and say I’m broken down

they tell me it’s just human
sometimes we all fall
it’s how you pull yourself

up off the ground

Sometimes I walk in the woods
the deer feed as I walk on by
in the warming summer breeze

sometimes they run when I’m near
sometimes they stay and watch me go
and always do I smile

The song that plays in my head
called everyday will change
once I accept the truth

when I break down and forget my bounds
I stop and say I’m better today
peel me up and watch me bound

up off the ground
