  • Save me
    From the mechanics of everyday necessities
    Save me
    From heat which steals my body’s only comfort
    Restore to me
    The days when empty streets meant room for daydreams
    And not unnecessary fear
    Restore to me
    The state before wasted anxiety
    Which now transcends mind and controls body
    Show me
    The way to truly change
    And not just age with passing years
    Show me
    The root of my insecurities
    So that I may chop down the resulted tree
    Help me
    To remember the ties which bind me to reality
    Help me
    To see the balance when the world is askew
    Save me
    For I cannot do so on my own…
