Near – Written Sunday 23rd October 1994 (Aged 19)


this is the strangest,
weirdest time
ever in my life
i hope it is good for everyone
you know it is good
things that have been untrue
are coming true
dreams are turning out good
realism is you
i have told everyone,
that it has been hard
but now i understand
there is so much change happening
it has been so weird
change is all around
i guess it was always there
just before i actually saw it
welcome to my life
i have got secrets to tell
but i promise you
i will never make life hell
we will go right on through
it is so good to be alive
it is dark here
but there is light on the other side
and i know, we will make it though
