By Jaileen Pierre-Louis (’18)

I’ve been searching trees to find
What I don’t believe
You say there are laws in nature so I look
But I can’t see
They tell me I am lost, but I know that I am not
I’ve been running in the woods to free
Myself from the evil ways they perceive
I’ve been flying with the bees because they are wise
You say that you know everything but I don’t have the time
To be confused, or lied to
