Alice

I can feel myself shrinking down


Just like Alice in her wonderland


But through the bright colors I can see


That there is no mad hatter here for me


I look to the table all ready for tea;


“Come quick and sit” they call hastily  


I'm much too late to be where I'm found;


So the arm on the face is telling me now


These cards are divided each to their own


And in the middle I stand, myself all alone


The Queen of Hearts is a bitter one


Taking from each what she's jealous of


And I find it hard to look out and see


Love on the face of the my enemy


So I do what I must, what is asked of me;


Lay my life down and declare myself free


My fate was decided; all things to come set


Unrevealed victory until each step I met


And just like Alice the courage I have


Isn't decided by the height that I stand


I find in myself in this world set apart


Not by my stature but by measure of heart


The jealous and lies once present here


Both now under words that cast out all fear


So set for goodbye I tell them all


Through labored breath as I slow to stall


How I long to go and I long to stay


But I know it's not home as I am called away


Now to myself I close my eyes tired


And I pray for faith and the mind of a child


To hold to a place others can't see 


And remember like Alice not all’s, as it seems
