Others – Written Monday 8th March 2004 (Aged 29)


the problems has always been
i have never needed –
other human being
not in a large number
say, similar to a herd
just a few to keep me warm
and a few special words
others need to embrace
and the make the world better
that is fine,
but that is for them
and it has never been mine
the problem has always been
that less is certainly more
and spirituality is so unseen
i have always been different things
to other human beings
and with few ever really believing
