New Start – Written Friday 29th July 2004 (Aged 29)

New Start

new start
breathe a sigh of relief
tired of the cold
and the chatter of teeth
incidental music
plays a theme on my mind
happiness is a glimpse away
much easier to find

new start
and the wheels are rolling
but, oh look…
at how tired i am
and how hard i try
just to understand
this kind of treatment
is deserving of no man
but i have played my part
and now it is over
new start
