Caution – Written July 2010 (Aged 35)


i know i hold back
comes with a coat
and an arm around my shoulder
is not a passageway
it is the boulder
i should leap
like i did all those years ago
i should think less
i know i was a mess
it is just…
this caution, i am not so sure
it is this life thing
because i have experienced the future
i should say something poetic
but i cannot be that prophetic
and it feels, pathetic
