Witnesses to the World – Written Friday 14th May 2004 (Aged 29)

Witnesses to the World

for the last few months
i have listened
to your opinions
and i have become subdued
my spirit has been lessened
and my belief, almost fully used
i have listened
and heard you speak
i have asked for clarification
but the defence has been weak
we are all witnesses,
to this world
we are witnesses to both the good
and the bad
to the downright ugly
and the downright sad
and as a witness
i will continue to comment
on the proceedings
i will continue to make statements
after all, truth is not misleading
but at present, it is constant lies
on which we are now feeding
