Becoming

May 10, 2020

Should I be afraid 
Of becoming the wind
Of blowing away 
Or going adrift

Should I be concerned 
Of becoming the dirt
Or breaking apart
And not getting hurt

Should I be scared
Of becoming the sea
Of washing away
Of losing what’s me

Should I be dismayed
Of becoming the light
Of burning away
Of shining too bright

But I could do more
If I were the wind
I’d blow on the shores
To push the waves in

And I could move
The clouds 
From between the sun and you
So it shines on through
And you
Can feel the warmth 
While the breeze is kissing you

If I were the wind
If I were the wind
