A Way Forwards – Written Thursday 17th February 2005 (Aged 29)

A Way Forwards

i just want a chance
a way forwards
thankful for everyday
but always aware of my flaws
i just want a touch
of the wild blue sky
of the clouds
before they roll by
i saw a person,
selling dreams on a corner
no doubt,
they had found themselves boxed in
so let me have the chance
a way forwards
a way out of confusion
thankful for everyday
just not the illusions
or the lies that people say
