Jan 2016
In the corner I
Lie in wait
Waiting for you to arrive

Tossed around
Like an old tennis ball
I barely just survive

Brothers and sisters
Friend and foe
I watch them disappear

Plucked from a tree
Of endless choice
It's only me you hear

Open one eye
Unknowingly hear
I've sat inside your vault

I watch you now
And wonder if
I'll be heard as merit or fault

Can't run now
Embrace me now
You have entered my game

Who am I?
Come now child
I am your given name.
