K's bday

You look sad – uncomfortable
You seems tired – unhealthy
What happened
You used to raise – proud,
Mingled to the wind, Protect me!
What happened
You used to make me breathe,
You are now – suffocating – strangled

I don't know how you – do it
I don't like, when people tell me what to do,
But you – you do it
If I were you – I’d just refuse to grow,
Everybody’s looking for freedom, we’d understand
Why don't you go on strike – move some place else

I don't know how you – do it
I feel constraint by my own scarf
At least, you’re warm, aren't you?
I’m trying to protect you, you know that right?
You know my intentions, aren’t that bad
I think – I’m necessary – helpful
I won’t argue – I do have the foolish savior’s fantasy – ego
But I know, I need you
I’m trying to cultivate you, create space for you
I know, it’s not comfortable, you’ve told me already,
But you know, I don't have much room either myself, don't have fresh air at my window
We’re the same

I know, you just are – presence,
Master level – adaptability – emotional intelligence,
I’m sad, you look sad
I wish, I could save you, See!
– that’s what I was talking about
I know you’re – saving me,
We could run away
We’d live wild and shelter animals

You know, today’s King’s bday,
Must mean, discrimination and segregation, repression and detention are over
We can escape now
Don’t be scared
Break through, I know you can,
You don’t belong here – asphalt squared frame,
I don’t either,
I ain’t a city tree, you ain’t a city girl.
