As I Lie Here

As I lie here all around me I see

A whole world of creativity

The Birds, oh how they sing

With their little ones under their wing

The wind softly blowing through my locks

making my work run away like a fox

But as I lie here

I can’t help but think of one fear

What will happen when all this comes to an end?

How could I defend

Those who try to ruin you.

As I lie here feeling the dew

slowly, so slowly, dampening my skin

I don’t want to commit the great sin.

I just want to lock you up and keep you forever

but you are here for everyone not just a selfish me.
