I'm trapped in a bean
If you know what I mean
Maybe you don't...
Maybe I don't...
The hard shell encloses me
Protecting from life's clarity
But also shutting out everything else
It might be time to find myself
I take a tentative step out
Then two more to prove my clout
To myself, of course
Now stepping in fours
Striding, running before my courage is gone
Leaping out, the world is not so bad, I was wrong
I am a jumping bean in a new land
The best things are the ones not planned.
