Take a Look – Written Monday 10th October 2005 (Aged 30)

Take a Look

take stock of yourself
take stock of who you are
have a think about it
what is your use
and what are you good for
there are many things
but this is not a war
and without understanding
there is no healing
and without acceptance
there is no true feelings
without accepting responsibilities
there is only a sense of leaving
take a look at yourself
not through the eyes of a fool
because there is nobody else
sadness is worn like grandma’s shawl
you can walk and run
but often, we just crawl
take stock of yourself
learn about who you are
