*The Earth Beneath You*

October.1.1997 
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins


When ever you walk around 
You step on rocks beneath your feet 
You hear a crunching sound 
Where ever you go the earth and foot meet 

 

The rock so cold and dark 
The trees so brown and bare 
If you happen to walk without shoes 
You'll get cut or end up with an ugly mark 
Or better ye get a bruise 
Walking on glass would be a foolish dare 

 

The sand is tan and dull 
People say the earth is a beautiful sight 
Or you have a beautiful soul 
But they never wondered 
What it would be like without light 

 

The earth beneath you is dark and dreary 
Damp and cold 
It's like a horror series 
Keeping the earth from falling 
You could never hold
