Let me out of this box for my life is fading fast

My inabilities are incurable and yet I feel the air

Twisted arms are reaching skywards.  But touching nothing that I know

Let me out of this box.  For the breath  I feel  may be my last...

I'm walking backwards across this planet where nothing grows and loves no more

Waterfalls have stopped their tumbling.  As my heart calls  out to a distant shore...

These skies have become multicolored,  cascading light shade all around with sound

Let me out of this box.  For all I want to do is run upon this sacred ground!

My ashes are burning I'm becoming nothing but a pile of scattered cinders red with worry

Memories of my life will be distinguished like a candle in the darkest of the night

But listen to the birds sing just catch a glimpse of that jackdaw happy as a lark...

Let me out of this box.  For I've decided I need some light and inside here its just too dam dark
