Something Dull That Must Be Abandoned

from Collage by ellen cherry

lyrics

Please forgive me
don’t forget me
Always worried
don’t you let me

Keep on breathing
Keep on thinking
Always writing
always singing

Heavy burden
make it smaller
Chin up back straight walking taller

This is the dream of the frightened the scared
The scolded the badgered the sad the unprepared
Not a book or a bird or a gem that is rare
But something dull that must abandoned

Looking inward light is beaming
Only sleeping never dreaming

Let the season pass you by
Let the knots become untied

You might fear you’re left behind
Had to be cruel to be kind

This is the dream of the frightened the scared
The scolded the badgered the sad the unprepared
Not a book or a bird or a gem that is rare
But something dull that must abandoned

Keep on breathing
Keep on thinking
Always writing
Always singing
