I am the scarecrow
I’m missing a part of my mind
I’m lost and unable to find
it again
 
I would be the wisest in the land
and then I would finally understand
the truth behind my faded grin
 
Won’t you help me
find myself again
I’m not living
and I’m not a man
anymore
 
I am the tin man
Frozen and without a heart
I don’t even know where to start
my friend
 
My love would be so beautiful and true
If you only knew what i would do
If I wasn’t so brittle under my painted skin
 
Won’t you help me
find myself again
I’m not living
and I’m not a man
anymore
 
I am the lion
my courage has left me alone in the dark
I’m running away from my home
again
 
I could be the bravest of them all
If I knew the teeth beneath my smile
instead of the fear behind my yellow eyes
 
Won’t you help me
find myself again
I’m not living
and I’m not a man
anymore

I guess this isn't a poem, it's more of a song. Will attempt to record and try to post a recording to youtube. Will start trying to turn more of my poetry into songs, I'm trying something new.. Stay tuned.
