Upbeat – Written Sunday 7th April 2002 (Aged 27)

Upbeat

everyday life is different now
where once,
it was strange and rarely cute
now it is –
planes and parachutes
everyday life is different now
the stain glass has passed
and the work we do –
is somehow not so hard
it is not how it used to be
or even how it once was
everyday life is different now
where once,
it was harsh and often bleak
now it is –
well, it is just the next day i seek
i can dance the futuristic waltz –
even with my two left feet
shoulders no longer need salt
it all feels quite upbeat
