Half a World – Written Wednesday 19th June 2002 (Aged 27)

Half a World

half a world
not quite the stars
that perhaps
we once reached for
when we were younger
when we imagined the future
but, do not lose your hunger
all adversity
will make us wonder
half a world
some distance from this one
when we were younger
and yearned for the sun
half a world
and half a moon
we have the view
from this central room
