I am. Really. I didn’t used to be 

It took a long time and a large fee


Words were dead when I felt like death

In a way they still are without your breath


All I am is a speck of sand

Carrying worlds of existential demand


I just want to slip through time and space

Stop being and melt my face 


But I still stop to tie my shoelace

And I lift my hands to sing your praise


I know life

I know strife


What is the validation of this nation?

Is this condemnation at this station?


Are we obsessed or are we possessed?
