Metamorphosis oct 14
I sit alone, these autumn days, darker mornings, mushroom haze,
Walls zig zag,kaleidoscopic, telepathic, telescopic... Now onto another topic
Grey hair from living at a loss, still many rivers left to cross
Eyes like pennies swallow bennies, 1-2-3-4-5 then many
Poetic license, I been naughty, lads n lasses.... UB40!
Now begin, be realistic, I'm the 1in 10 statistic
A ravaged mind, through red red wine, Chasing off old Father Time
after all, I'm only human.... Freds dropped dead, I was a hughfan (rik mayall)
And dream of life's great plan for me, mapped out, had chips n egg for tea
My dad my hero, Claudius n Nero..... Steptoe n son more like
Both psychonauts , in deed and thoughts, nurtured so alike.
We've a million smiles, solitary tears, at night....I question, weeks, months, years.
And then what? I sit alone, delete fb, turn off phone.
To spend a minute, living in it, tic toc tic toc infinite
Mindfulness , relieves the stress, unwind, less grind.. Forget this mess.
Enjoying being me, a son, I lost some battles... War goes on
My eyes are swollen, tears have run, yes truly dad, I am ur son...
im just embracing, truly facing, the real me, I'm up and pacing
took so long to realise, That heavy mask slips from my eyes.
And now I'm hollow just a shell, brick by brick rebuild mysell
This facade that I've cultivated, tend like a garden, F!!k I hate it!!
It tires me out being such a c&/t I'm sorry, but you know me.....blunt
Caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly, it's time I took my cut of sky
Pump up my wings, try out new things, whatever life's tapestry brings
I want it all, I feel a thirst, is that ambition?
What a mission.And still I sit alone, here's wishing,
I find the door which I unlock, A wasted life, tic toc, take stock,
I am the key to my own fate, a new chapter " It's Never Too Late"......... (to quote Kyle minogue) lolol,
