Conquer the World – Written Friday 8th May 2009 (Aged 34)

Conquer the World

when i was young
i wanted to conquer the world
but when i get older
all it did was conquer me
and it go so much colder
no climate change for me
just more memories to shoulder
and the raising of me seas
but inside,
i came to terms with who i am
i took long, long walks
and made some conscious plans
i held all party talks
and i began to understand
because when i was young
i wanted to conquer the world
but when i got older
all the world did is conquer me
but it is okay,
these later years start to set me free
