I sit outside
And watch the world go by.
Squirrels and birds say hi,
Unlike any words I speak:
I smirk from cheek to cheek.
Happy to view
The clouds that move.
Spinning so fast that we cant feel,
I’m just another who wants mass appeal.
A sky so clear, you could see the galaxy.
I shed a tear for it has to be,
Motionless in gravity.
I don’t see, what is exactly,
A tree that reaches the sky,
A snake, we meet eyes.
He tells me, “I’ll change our lives.”
“If you see me, you’re about change.
It might seem strange, talking to a snake,
But if you see, it cannot be fake.”
Through my eyes, it’s my life to take.
Many would say a snake is deceitful.
Since my encounter, I’ve been nothing but peaceful.
The serpent has spoken,
At a time when I was once choking,
I was then chosen.
My spirit is cold blooded.
Skin flooded by scales.
Scent with my tongue, to find a trail.
My destination is still unknown,
Some grown and feel like a bum.
Troublesome as I was,
Everyday spent getting buzzed.
My brain became corrupted.
So I lost my focus.
I found realization at my lowest
So I think of the scales
Knowing, I will not fail.
I live to tell the tale
Of the snake I met,
The change I made, with no regrets.
Expect nothing so you’re always surprised.
Open your eyes and realize
How to live your life.
A snake eats its mice.
