i tell myself

the wind keeps
changing direction
the clouds keep
secluding the light

and i tell myself
i should know by now
i should know
what’s good for me
and what flame
will just burn right down

and i tell myself
to wait patiently
something’s good
waiting on me

the ground keeps
shaking the firm
the roots keep
reaching for depths

and i tell myself
to wait patiently
something’s good
waiting on me
