Looking On – Written Sunday 30th September 2001 (Aged 26)

Looking On

they looked on,
i look bored
i have turned my life
the stopwatch is metal
it does not feel like my kite
it does not feel right
they look on,
flooded by light
i move on and go
the fight is upstream
and sometimes it is hard to row
they look on,
i look forwards
they look back
taking prompts from idiot boards
no tea for us this time
sit back and feel sublime
