I don't expect myself to dream. I don't expect myself to exceed.

No Life - on Earth - is Flat

I don't expect myself to dream.

I don't expect myself to exceed.

I don't expect myself to succeed.

I don't expect myself to achieve.

I don't expect myself to overreach.

I don't expect myself to reach.

I can't see myself shooting up.

I can't see myself flying far.

I can't see myself reaching that bar.

... monkey bars,

... granola bars,

... ice cream bars ....

I can't see myself

Fail in any way.

But I can't bear walking,

Any lower,

Any lower, below zero.

Fear.

Yes, fear

Yes, fear - please lend a ear.

I can't see myself going far;

Empty

Empty, soulless

Empty, soulless, no expectations,

Letting life lead me by the nose,

Into whatever flowering rose,

Opportunity for others,

But a danger for me,

I never question what I obtain,

As never expected, anyways.

Maybe

Maybe f a l l i n g

From where I

From where I Am

May seem too tough,

As I'm standing

On firm ground.

But there's always s es pes opes lopes slopes and cr ks, ee

So how should I go?

So how should I go? Up?

So how should I go? Up? Or down?

Just as there's always a higher sky,

There's always a valley,

There's always a valley, easy to come by.

A hole

A hole - deep enough.

A dead end.

A dead end. From which

I may never,

I may never, be able,

To extract myself from.
