Static…static faces…static lifelines.
parallel lives lost
switched off in sudden confusion
not wanting to fail.
Choices? futures sold/spent.
the easy choice…we do the ‘right thing’
freely we take them in an instant
in search of ?…Contentment
greed we seek everything now
blinded of tomorrow..but once signed
suddenly it is today
dawn rising seeking you out
got to get free…..Run
a fleeting image troubles us
in fear we stop
trembling we falter
stumbling tumbling we fall
horrible/ shallow/ empty/ awfulness
round and round/puzzling/fumbling
blaming it is too late – ‘Shop Closed’
we have forgotten who we were ever once to be..
