Do You Know? – Written Monday 1st January 2001 (Aged 25)

Do You Know?

do you know,
i still cry
you may think i am a cynic
but i am looking out
i still want the change
i am still like you
we are almost the same
i wonder what the future holds
how big are its hands
does it ever, truly, really understand
i still think,
do you know
life, it comes and goes in a blink
ships are easily lost to the sea
i still cry,
i will do it for you and me
you may think i do not care
but i do,
just look out, i am still there
