    I am
    But a small insignificant grasshopper
    In the sharp grass blades
    Of your
    Rage


    Quickly
    I hop out of the presence of you
    So that I may escape
    The force of
    Your foot


    As I can not run fast enough
    Through this forest of Dark Trees
    To disappear from the wrath of thee
    Time and Time again
    You always seem
    to Capture
    Me


    Remind me
    That I am nothing
    Yet a grasshopper at your disposal
    Rained upon by your
    Abusive footsteps
    That I cower
    In the presence of everyone
    So ashamed
    Of what you have done
    That I trust no one


    The lilies
    They comfort me
    As they pretend to understand
    My plithe
    How the image of your hand
    Frightens Me


    A new Sun
    Pours its warmth of understanding
    Over me
    Not quite knowing
    The Full Story.
    His care
    A summer´s breeze
    Yet, Im in no shape right now
    To sample his minty greens
    Cas the grasshopper
    Still lives in me


    Yet slowly gaining strength.
