The Breeze

Maybe my father was too old
Maybe sentience was not meant to be
Maybe he weighted more than gold
Maybe akin I sting like a bee

Maybe the big-fish was indeed caught
Maybe her way will seldom be taught
Maybe our lives never will shine
Maybe God saw us in a mine

Maybe one day I changed up my mind
Maybe my past was once in a bind
Maybe without notice the earth once shook
Maybe that day we all saw what it took

Maybe true carnage became the spot
Maybe since I became this robot
Maybe today I am just fine sans-abris
Maybe tomorrow we pick up the debris

Maybe to pretend that life transcends
Maybe it is how we make amends
Maybe tis to like or not to like
Maybe our greed reached a threshold spike

Maybe lately we are without guild
Maybe yet one day we will rebuild
Maybe I should wish it upon a star
Maybe then the wound would finally scar

Maybe a big heart is a luxury
Maybe somehow I needed such hubris
Maybe similar to getting a bris
Maybe pain followed suit in a hurry

Maybe I will trade you on Christmas Eve
Maybe so I will wear it on my sleeve
Maybe that will warm up the deepest freeze
Maybe just maybe we can feel the breeze
