Why it not be me?

Fade in and focus on

          Kick back and ponder

The child over the fence and through the trees
pretending over yonder

Is this thing of play
of joy and summers day
of righteous soul and gloried way
so far from you today?

When you were he
or ye be she
living life beneath a tree

When food and family
play and love
were all that truly be

What was the more
to your need?

Let it free
and start to breath

Or cut your branches
and dry like leaves

Crumple and blow away

          The choice is yours today

The past aware was never fair
but the trees are over there

Food and family, play and love

          Could they be all you need?

Dance beneath the trees and see

Why it not be me?
