Teddy temple

Still I stand tall

It may mean nothing to you all
And you can take a decade to understand it whole,
Am rising but you you think it's a downfall
Am the only stone that gathers moss when i roll,
thought i was out for a death toll
Or, there were prescence of planks underneath my feet to make me crawl,
But still i stand tall, even at skyfall

My roots you wan't to cut off,
Judging that am heartless like Adolf,
Want to hit me hard like balls of golf
But i got no obstacle in my imagination -not even your cough.
That curse you sent along stormy winds didn't knock me off,
Neither was i shaken or became a shoff
Still i stand tall, even if you're frightening like a wolf.

Spat me out after chewing me,
But still on a mission to be what am destinedd to be,
On your way up the ladder you were cruel to me
The goodness in me, you couldn't see,
Like you locked me out of love and threw keys into the sea
But miraculously opened the doors with magical key
Still I stand tall, however much you dispute me.

A soaring kite i am,
I don't give pffles a damn
am ready for whatever would come,
Like winds, i blow with charms
Swiftly I'll break through-no harm,
I don't easily get tipsy, don't attempt feeding me scrummy rum,
Still I stand tall boldly and firm

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
