Hype – Witten July 2021 (Aged 46)


i have been –
so many different –
types of people in my life
and we are all victims –
of unwarranted hype
that is why –
it is best to play against type
and do –
what feels ethically right
and sometimes you need to
push back with all your might
in my life i have –
rarely lived up to hype
but i try to keep hope –
firmly in my sights
