Tame the Wild Vine
The lily flower is a calming thing.
It sits in the water and you never notice.
It brings with it love, joy and bliss.
When it’s gone you still think about it.
I am the lily flower
I’m there, standing and sitting,
And you don’t notice.
When I’m around I bring care, jubilance, and tranquility.
When I’m gone you still think about me.
This is only what I hear from others.
I see myself as nothing but wild,
Growing all over the place.
I climb and climb.
People chop me down,
But then I grow in another direction.
Never stopping, never staying still.
Some might see this as an inspiring thing,
But what do you see when you look at a vine?
Lots and lots of confusion,
Knots that will never untangle,
Weaving and unweaving,
Never stopping never staying still.
You cut me down, but keep on growing
In another direction.
You can never tell where a vine will end up,
It is untamable.
I need to be tamed.
