ROCK’N BACK’N FORTH

I see myself
in the future

My work is done
I’ve used my will
Dreams turned to stone

My life sacrificed
for my life

Not a deed undone

Sitting on the porch

Rock’n Back’n Forth
Rock’n Back’n Forth

I’m sketching
a small row of grape leaves

I can hear the sound
of the pencil on the paper

Whispering

Do you remember
Do you remember
When you saw yourself
in the future

Rock’n Back’n Forth
Rock’n Back’n Forth

If I am not the me
I think I am
then I must be
the I
I am

Rock’n Back’n Forth
