I myself am entirely made of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.

There are fields of grass

Lining the spaces between my toes

People live in villages there

They talk of giants and flooding

How the sky seems ages away


I imagine their world is much wider

Stalks of green are their skylines

They move through streets of dirt

Worried of being swooped off by birds

They exist the same as I


They are people who stand

Tall as my index fingertip

Carving their lives into the ground

Like innocent signatures

They watch everything grow


With prideful eyes- entranced

They look at their loved ones

Feeling happiness larger than their bodies


When I look at you, I feel miniscule

I shrink down to the size

Of the people between my toes

I am timid and nervous and proud

As I look to you beside me
