A balancing act, that art of give and take
Measuring what makes it fair
When one scale weighs a little less
The other somewhat more
It’s not a game, it’s not a race, but if it were
Should they tie in equal place?
A perfect match, a perfect weight
But in a perfect world
It doesn’t really happen that way

Move On

Posted on: 30 August 2007

It’s time to move on they say
What do they mean?
Who are they to know what I need?
I’ll do what I like
… and when I please
Whose business is it if I’m happy
… or wallowing in abject misery?
People are funny when they say
Shake off the dust sheets
You’re not an object to be hidden away
Guess it’s nice they bother
Guess it’s nice they care
Wake up
Shake up
Enough of recluse
No more excuse
Move on they say
What they don’t know and
What they don’t seem to see
Is the inscrutable smile on my face
Maybe I have moved on
In my own little way
