No Way Of Knowing – Written April 2003 (Aged 28)

No Way Of Knowing

i have no way of knowing
no way of knowing,
if i coming or i am going
or if my mind is running
or if indeed,
it is staying
i know they hunt the caves
looking for a reason
is that what they crave
no room for individuality
if you are individual,
that is just a feisty mess
you better rename and treat it
treat it as an illness
after all,
we cannot judge the world
from what we are,
only from what is
in reality we are chalk and cheese
because routine,
it acts like your guide dog
it’s exactly how you feel
my world is full of exploration
it is all that i believe
we both have very different situations
