30th August 2013
Points in the compass and moments of time
Things happening in the drift of life
Driving for days across the desert
From one side of the country to the other
East to West
Then back again
West to East
Heading North on questions of restraint
Captivity of children and parents of people
Being Born and Dying
Sufferance of deceptions through love
Women who love too much
Once I went to a party and I had a good time
That time was fine
Then I grew up
Into a dream that was good
A dream that went somewhere else
I am always grateful for my experiences in life
I am grateful for the people I have known and for my family
There is no regret even in great sadness or loss
There is only that experience and the fact that it happened
The world does not run well on feelings.
And we are living in a world gone mad.
Where justice is there for the villains
And the heroes soon turn
Those knights on white horses that were only dreams
Then you wake up and they are gone.
Once men were men and it was okay for them to be men
Once women were women and it was okay for them to be women.
Babies used to come from a woman and a man
In love and lust
The world on steroids is only a world for those who take them
Encrusted Earth, in a miscellaneous universe.
With no room for regrets and test tubes for babies to get women pregnant at 50.
So soon a baby will come from even more sterile places and women will no longer be vessels.
They will just go to work and support the economy.
This is technology and this is equality and this is what people want
To have homes and televisions and computers.
You can’t drift in life you have to be compelled and driven.
Planes move faster than cars
While oceans fill up with plastic
The trees grow and are removed
Forests get felled and cities become decrepit some fall into the sea like Atlantis
The people breathe and they cross lifespans
They pray to their Gods to fulfil all their needs,
Some prayers get answered while others don’t.
In hindsight all we see in anything is movement
Points in the compass and moments in time.
