I Was A Giant


I witnessed myself become buried amongst the trees
I was the mountain and I was the sea
Incapable of recognizing myself I motioned
To all life for comfort and fame
I needed to know that I was alive with the rest
But that mist and fog buried me within plain sight
I had become hidden within the world around me
I was a giant

No motion
No given structure
No sound
I was a giant
