From – Written Tuesday 1st October 2009 (Aged 34)


from falling over
to falling in love
from chasing dreams
to dreaming and thinking,
it is too much
my life has never been the same
i have seen its map
and all its terrain
i have seen all those chances
where there is something to gain
it is something,
just to hope and believe
be so bold,
wear your heart on your sleeve
so for a time
i am closing doors
and settling back down
because falling over
is not much fun
so much lost
so little won
and falling in love
can be much the same
but the life map keeps on changing
so, it is time for new terrain
