the daily ride

My mind mellows

watching rooves of buildings

scrape the creamy clouds from the sky.

We roll on

people watching –

me watching people…

The sudden screeching of oil hungry brakes/breaks

all conversation in half.

Four walls,

only seperated by human flaws –

square after square after square, metre.

No room to slide,

only fall, into it all.

Time drips from the rusty eaves of suburban houses,

echoing…

as it joins every drip that fell before it.

A pool of history – so dense –

that no one moment is recognisable from any other.

Houses, cars, faces and places fly by,

and as beautiful as they seem

I can’t help but think how liberating it would be

if we all just came clean…

That however, would eradicate the stability of four walls, shallow talk and government policy.

It’s not about who you should be,

not about the place you would be,

and certainly not about the person you could be –

baby, don’t fall victim to society.

You aren’t here to simply read it’s books,

master it’s looks –

nor should you kill yourself trying to hang from it’s hooks.

I tell a story,

not of victorious glory

for I’ve won no prize

but simply opened my eyes,

and watched the world fly by –

on the train ride home.

About a lifetime of lessons

Inspired by life. I love challenges and new experiences. On the brink of an adventure to discover, and rediscover... In the year of my thirtieth birthday I decided to throw in my job, put my money on red and take the gamble of a lifetime... a one way ticket... This blog documents my journey. Feel free to visit whenever you like, comment and follow my travels here :) View all posts by a lifetime of lessons
