Long to Be Wild

Long to be wild
Be nature’s child
Rabbits from hats
Night cries, wild cats

Climbing ever higher
Nothing left, desire
Novelty, each breath
Songs linger, past death

Somewhere in between
Truth we wean
Long to be wild
Be nature’s child

Fire inside, never tame
Always wild, never same
Many forms, all are one
Life multitudinous, burning sun

Play, you will
Distant dreams fulfill
Long to be wild
Be nature’s child

Old, new, side by side
Child of wild, therein hides
Never doubt resides
In the wild, truth abides
