People Peer In – Written Wednesday 31st October 2012 (Aged 37)

People Peer In

people will judge me
it will be those who wept
those who stayed
and those,
those who just slept
but i was never waylaid
my heartbeat
never truly strayed
i will always be judged
on the times
when i refused to budge
and the times when i jumped ship
when i took some medication
that could never really fit
but who is who,
and who has written,
the perfect book
people peer in and take a look
but they only look at others
and they never look at their own
people will judge me
a consequence as i am of my actions
of days,
when i lived with spiked reactions
