Dark Times – Written Thursday 2nd November 1995 (Aged 20)

Dark Times

as i crawled around the caverns
i saw echos of the past
but i realised visions of ones potential
means they can pass
about the world lies a deadly feeling
mankind’s fingernails look dirty
as we scratch in the earth
here i am in the caverns
looks like it is a dark day
i see echos of my mind
guess i am here to stay
relaxation is easy to find
i do not know whey any of us are here
we must be out of our minds
i will keep on crawling
as we learn to walk
i will keep us together
i think it is time to talk
i wonder if women have the power
as a man i often scared
my strength is rarely a tower
i have been trying for so long now
to permanently catch your gaze
i have only ever been a nearly man
but thanks anyway, for these wonderful days
