Lacking sleep and food and vision
Here I am again, encamped upon your floor,
Craving sanctuary and nourishment,
Encouragement and sanctity and more.
The streets seemed very crowded,
I put on my bravest guise
I know you know that I am acting,
I can see it in your eyes.
In the harsh light of freedom I know
That I cannot deny that I have wasted time,
Have frittered it away in idle boasts
Of my freedom and fidelity,
When simpler words would have profited me
It isn't enough in the end, when I'm looking
