Strange Advice – Written Wednesday 30th June 2010 (Aged 35)

Strange Advice

i love it –
when strangers give me advice
oh, i listen…
to their views on life
but they only see life as just one
as it is uniform,
the same stitching,
the same buttons,
the same fear,
the same name badge,
the same tear,
of course i know no better
and i once put that down
in a strangely worded letter
but the letter just came back
it just leads me to believe –
that too many confuse opinion with fact
