Recovery – Written Thursday 10th September 2009 (Aged 34)

 Recovery 

people ask how I am
as they pass me by
on life's road
there I am limping along
lost a gear
hazards are on
not yet broken down
but my engine is failing 
making a funny noise
tyres look flat
steering kind of loose
cannot turn back
people ask how I am
as I move lanes
the wipers do not work
hard to shift the rain
no one checked the oil
i know I am to blame
the fuel seems low
which is such a shame
there are places to go
people ask how I am
