My wild child


you say his hair is too long
or where are his pants
with a sweet smile I'll explain
we won't play by your rules

it can be hard to understand
if you've been wearing those shoes for decades
not feeling the cool earth beneath your feet
not having a naked dip in the cool moonlight

the only revolution we have
is the one within ourself
for if you've felt the freedom
of the air & the sand on your feet
you wouldn't have to ask

this is the state we come in
and the state to which we return

wild child
stay true to yourself
stay wild
