the natural

he was their guru
he was their god
he was their master, how odd,
how odd

he ruled the playground
he cast all their roles
he was just 3 but they
gave him control

the 10’s and 11’s,
the 8’s and the 9’s
his age didn’t matter
his rule was divine

now he is doubting
unsure of his worth
unsure of his reasons
for being on earth

he’s still their master but
he doesn’t know,
he’s a natural leader

with nowhere to go
