Crown Shyness Dec 2022
To be a tree
I would be tall and mighty
I would provide food for the beings of nature:
The insects, the birds, the rodents, the fungi
I would provide them shelter:
A home for families of squirrels, birds, and owls
And when my leaves would fall in the cold
I would give the insects and the rodents shelter,
A place to rest in the leaf litter
And I will give the soil nutrients

Kids would try to climb my branches
High enough to reach the sky
Though I wouldn't let them
Maybe one day
I will be met with someone who's soul is with nature
Her heart would be full of
Forests, plains and meadows, and mountains
She would treat me like a being,
Embrace me and climb to the sky
And when the wind blows through my leaves
I would whisper to her
The tales of the past,
Of the beginnings of Earth
"Once upon a time, there was nothing"

The moon is full tonight
It shines brighter than the street lamps
Brighter than the stars
However, the light in you
Was brighter
"All of this pollution chokes out the stars"

Your hypocrisy is no surprise
you choose to close your mind
than open your eyes
"We can be who we want to be."
Crown Shyness Nov 2020
I've had months
But the tears are still there
You've been gone for a while
But I still expect you to be here
"I've moved on and it's painful. Every time I look, I remember that you're not here anymore."

Practice makes perfect
Is what they say
But what if I'm not perfect
And mess up everyday
"Let's normalize saying 'practice makes improvement'"
Crown Shyness Oct 2020
There is no land
beneath my feet
I'm sinking
in the ocean deep
"My lungs are full of water"
Crown Shyness Oct 2020
She was chosen
"save the world,"
they told her
but she couldn't
"It's all gone"
