I’m But a Dust

 

……………………….I am nothing
………………………nor am I living
upon the dirt…i belong
upon the dirt…i’ll be strong

………………………..I’m but a dust
……………………who dares for a trust
unto this ground… I remain
unto this ground …I don’t restrain

………………………… I have no sight
…………………….but fought with might
from a piece of me… it was a pain
from a piece of me…was I to gain

…………………………I’m but a dust
……………………….exist from a gust
born out of the wind…I have flown
born out of the wind… into the air is sown

………………………….I have no world
………………….but can live a hundred fold
I’m but a dust…so tiny and small
I’m but a dust…in your eyes, for tears to fall
