I've been wandering around a lot lately, living off seeds and nuts.
Feel like a west coast ghost; brushing by the days and the people so bright.
I'm not singing their songs, and they sure aren't singing mine; not most of them, anyway.
I'm becoming more me... and I don't know if that scares me.

Thought I'd say this sooner.
Thought I'd be there sooner.
Though I've never known what ought be expected...
Not really.

Listen, I feel like splinters these days.
Pinning people's feet, like thumb tacks.
I'm still not sure it's right, or wrong for that matter.
It just is.
I just am.

And that's okay, I think--I know--I hope.

Tell me, what makes you really smile?
Like, wider than the trees spread their branches to the sun?
Praise and glory and beaming sunshine and the smell of so many flowers...
Why do they elude me so?

But they're there. And I'm here.
I am.
I'm doing well...

So you hang in there too, friends/colleagues/siblings/creatures of the world we wish to live in.

Hang on; it's coming*
