To keep your place

When did you begin
To believe
That you need to
Protect your place?

What will you do
To keep your place;
How far will you go
To protect what’s yours?

Whose shoulders
Will you stand upon,
When you reach for
What you seek?

Why do you believe
That you need a place
To keep and protect
Within this world?

How much sand are you
Able to hold within a storm;
Can you hold your ground
As it quickens under your feet?

Where is the limit
Of how far you will go,
To keep what
You believe is yours?
