dream as if you'll live forever
live as if you'll die tomorrow

Here I am, my feet on this ground
Here I am, all I feel is ground
My body is nothing
Just me and this earth beneath my soles
Just me and my toes
Curled up in the dirt

Here I am, my feet on this ground
I am no-where else but here.
It’s just me and my feet
On this afternoon day,
Right here

Here I am, my feet on this ground
Here I am, my bones near their home
Here I am, just me and my world
Here I am

I was inspired for this piece by the picture I included. I found it as I was searching for a picture for another entry and it haunted me. Words filled my head, and eventually like any good work, I couldn't hold them in any more. It was finished in ten minutes, hopefully it looks like more. :)
