Like someone

Like a nomad
I roam the hearts
Looking for fresh pasture
Yet none is my home

Like a nomad
Honest and simple
I settle for little
And easy to please

Like a shepherd
I care for my sheep
And by sheep I mean others
But my sheep are mindless

Like anyone
I laugh, love, and cry
I hate, pretend, and ignore
And I don’t tolerate things

So don’t blame me
When distance grows
When we grow like we met
Strangers
