Receiving a Gift

Most thought provoking lyric: Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see

The gift this song gives to me is not one that you can unwrap and halfheartedly thank your nana for even though she gave you the same thing for Christmas. Though a gift of lyric is intangible, they embrace my heart to the point where I can almost feel it. Strawberry fields gave me a gift of beautiful prose. If I ever muster up the courage (or intoxication) to get a tattoo, I would want it to be a homage to this, one of my very first Beatle songs. I'm not exactly sure where the words would find a home on my skin. I just want them to always be with me, so I can remember this song's gift to me.

The End
