"What if the person in the puddle is real, and you're just a reflection?" -Calvin & Hobbes

I"ll stand up for the tree

That stood up for me

When the world hid in shadows

Of shades gray

The truth is written

On bathrrom stall doors

Engraved in the pavement

On the sidewalks

Right in front of your picket fenced house

And you miss it

You walk past it everyday

And when it rains

You remember that day

That you stood

Underneath my tree


Pea coat toggles done to the top

As the sky filled your rain boots

With tears

The truth is written

On bathroom stall doors

Open your eyes

See the truth
