Nature, Who I See

Standard

Nature, when I’m with you,
I understand what I see.
Nature, when I see parts of You,
I know you talk to me.

Nature, when I see parts of You,
You’re less of a mystery.

Nature, can I help you
By observing visually?

Help

Where will people help me?
Who will understand?
Where can I go?
Where can I work?
Where can I play?
Where can I help?

Yes, where can I help
The world around me?
People won’t help me get paid…
Out the door.
People won’t help me have fun…
Out the door.
People won’t help me help the world…
Try, try again.

A Trap, A Prize?

Standard

Everything’s out of my grasp.
Theater,
Courses,
Publishing opportunities…

My current position,
So wonderful at first,
A trap.
A trap, for sure, unless, oh unless…
I can keep my eyes on the prize.
