Waving Goodbye – Written Thursday 23rd July 2009 (Aged 34)

Waving Goodbye

i know i am waving goodbye
i am not sure though,
if my wave has conviction
i cannot be sure,
if i feel jubilation
perhaps like us all,
i am let down by expectation
people nod in such a way
that typifies our situation
i am waving goodbye
standing on the platform
at a familiar station
but i can’t board those carriages
and find the destination
