White waves crash onto water, rock and sand Cold water splashes my legs, face and hand You push me away You pull me in Wash my feet And bury them in You lie there, amazingly still, Carry me with delightful ease, Then disturb the peace And break into storm, threatening to do me harm. But as I open my eyes, Terrible sights make me realise: I am the one doing you harm. Say, do I still belong to you? Or am i just a creature without a home All alone? I feel that I have become a stranger, Always putting you in danger Say, do you feel that, too? It seems like time has seperated you and me Will you and me ever again become 'we'? You glow in that delightful green Everything is still and serene I look up and see the leaves, far and near, Hear the birds sing and walk on without fear You protect and enchant me I feel so at peace, so at ease As if I was not alone, at home But then I see, how could you ever love me? I cause you harm, just by existing Can't live without destruction Or the goal of perfection Is there more to you I am not allowed to see Because I am human and will never ever be A creature of the woods, able to simply be good? Say, do I still belong to you? Or am I just a creature without a home All alone? I feel that I have become a stranger always putting you in danger Say, do you feel that, too? It seems like time has seperated you and me Will you and me ever again become 'we'? Please, let me make it right Don't let me die, unfulfilled With all this guilt Knowing that I was just a human fool to you And never had a clue Of the secrets you are hiding, the wonders I could have been finding I want us to find our way back to you, To choose harmony Over doing harm for money © Ricarda Haeseler and smallandsignificant.com, 2019.
