Ownership

You come into your own
While words give hue and cry
In the stillness that you own

When you are on your own
With solitude to pacify
You come into your own

And the silence is your own
Though melodies will reply
To the stillness that you own

With the calm that you have grown
You feel that you can fly
You come into your own

In the life that you have known
That strives to mystify
In the stillness that you own

And this realm is yours alone
As you feel the coming sigh
You come into your own
In the stillness that you own
