You think you can define me ~ Erin Hanson

You think you can define me,

That I’m a tick in just one box,

Like my being is a door,

That a single key unlocks,

But let me tell you something,

I have the universe inside,

I hold an untamed ocean,

With a constant changing tide,

I’m home to endless mountains,

With tips that touch the sky,

Flocks of grand migrating birds,

And deserts harsh and dry,

I house the wildest rivers,

And host the sweeping plains,

I feel the waves of sunshine,

Or in unrelenting rains,

Don’t tell me that you know me,

That “this right here is what you are”,

I am the universe in motion,

For I was born from stars.
