Innocence

Standard

My voice

Is the voice

Of many tongues

In dialects long lost

And yet to be

I speak only

Of things unseen

In meanings

That set free

Your heart to fly

In mysteries unknown

For that is only

And forever where you

Always will belong

Your song is free

Opportunity

Standard

 

Around the corner

Cannot see

Tomorrow

I just cannot know

And so…

I dig below

Unearth the dearth

Of what has been

Myself to find

I am not there

I’m truly bare

Unburied and

As naked as

This day is born

Unwritten definition

Forms my name

I am so rare

Not quite all there

The stakes are high

I sigh and cry…

 

Freedom flies

In defiance of 

The consequential

Instrumental

Tide of time
