Sometimes

tree

Sometimes
I feel that I understand nothing
sometimes
I hold the key to the universe
sometimes
I roar like a lion
sometimes
I run like a mouse
sometimes
the tide is way, way out
sometimes
the beach holds the full sea
sometimes
my faith is a tall tree
sometimes
an un-germinated seed
but always
You.
