Bind me in the softest leather 

Tightly to keep me together 

Be sure to mark your favorite places 

In among my weathered pages

Learn my stories, feel the words

Especially those unheard

And though you know I am not new

My cover is removed just for you

Lose yourself inside my leaves

And come together in sweet release 


Still Here

The world spins

And I spin with it

So damn tired

Of being caught in it

Things to do

Lives to live

And this life takes

What I can’t give

The spirit rises

The body’s rattled

Little Raven

Fight your battle

I know you know

It’s in your core

It won’t defeat you

You’ll win this war
