    me
    Walking down a country lane
    Near sunrise
    Alone and thinking
    The grass still wet
    From the dew that formed
    As it obeyed its nature
    Just me unalarmed
    All alone
    But not a bit lonely
    Going nowhere really
    It feels a bit chilly
    But i don't mind
    Just walking to find
    How i lost my connection
    Our love was near perfection
    i thought
    Or maybe
    i just bought
    What you sold me
    Believed all that you told me
    It's strange that way
    But i'm still me
    And in this way
    i'll go on
    Even though you're gone
    Not like before
    Because now you are in my memories
    Which is more good than bad
    Yes, i'm a bit sad
    But mostly i'm thankful
    For what i got
    And i'm never totally without
    For i was taught to love myself
    And once one has paid that cost
    They can never be totally lost.

    Really feeling this piece. There was something that was so tranquil and serene about your words. You made them come to life. Nice piece.

    Stay focused,

    Ujima
