Frances May

Rookie (1991 / Wales, the land of sheep and strange accents)

Lost


Get lost among the sandunes
Whoever you may be
The pebble clad beaches
the soft, subdued sea.

Lose yourself in the sandunes
Whoever you may be
Forget about your troubles
the pain, the misery.

We are all lost among the sandunes
Whoever we may be
searching for some reason
a way to break free

Each speck of sand, a person
just like you and me
Lost among the sandunes
a lost identity.

    made me feel calm... when you're lost in nature you can really be yourself as you can't be anywhere else... thanks (Report) Reply

    Lovely, and I agree wholeheartedly, for two reasons... the first, as you suggest, is about finding our deepest belonging in nature, and the second is that, when we lose ourselves, our socialized selves, we then have a chance to rediscover our true selves. (Report) Reply
