Seven Years – Written Friday 17th October 2008 (Aged 33)

Seven Years

life cycles…
seven years
that is what they say
we gave it a go
but people change
and people grow
and you cannot –
always grow together
even if you have sheltered –
each other from the weather
those that make it through
those that stick like glue
well, good luck to them
good luck to you
life cycles…
human beings changing
people changing all the time
i have seen people –
grasp for that perfection
like the grape clings –
to the vine
seven years….
that seems to be the time
