love gives life to

down in the dirt again
skin and bones all around
buried under ground
making mud for my meal
poor me poor me

in no place where no light exists
life breaks under the weight of all this
no sight to see as small as can be
unable to give it a name

learning lessons to be seen
and not heard in helpless destiny
with no thoughts of power
sick n tired o being sick n tired

the winds change blowing dust
off o me off o me get off o me
opening eyes to tears in the sky
speaking words come clearly by

no more victim or clone
taking care taking control
taking pride in ability
taking responsibility

i will for sure walk for sure wheel for sure
i will for sure wheel for sure walk for sure

i’m drinking my tea
i’m living with love and love is living with me

love gives life to love gives life to love gives life to
love gives life to love gives life to love gives life to
