Surrounded

By Oren Milgrom-Dorfman   age 11  


I am surrounded

It’s a fact, it is true

I am surrounded

It’s good and it’s bad, it has many hues


I am surrounded by people who want to check in

See how I’m doing, see if I’ve had a win

I am surrounded by people that say

I will try to help you in every way


Being surrounded is good, that is true

But as I have said, it has many hues


I am surrounded anytime, anywhere

I can’t escape, can’t get fresh air

I am surrounded, it feels suffocating

I need to escape, need to keep moving


Being surrounded can be bad, that is true

But I must remember that it has many hues


I am surrounded by people who love me

I am surrounded by people who care

I am surrounded by people that help me

In any way and anywhere


Being surrounded is good, bad and true

And what’s also true is that it has many hues


So being surrounded is both good and bad

It’s loving, it’s suffocating, it’s people holding your hand

Being surrounded is bad and it’s good

It’s helping, it’s holding, it’s I wish that I could

         

I am surrounded

It’s a fact, it is true

I am surrounded

It’s good and it’s bad, it has many hues
