Alive

keep me surrounded and keep me sane.
in my small, little box i will remain. 
Set me free when the earth is new, 
grass is green and sky is blue. 
release me now from sanctity, 
safety and security.
paranoia in my head, 
distraction from the tears I’ve shed. 
Sleep, oh sleep is welcome here, 
awaken with a lack of fear. 
feel the breeze that lets me thrive, 
so i might know that i'm alive.
