Things - daily things
Oh the washing, facing the tormenting of grey drops
The webs in the corner of bustling long legs, they can have their lunch today
and tomorrow, as I pass them by...
Dust bunnies bouncing in windy corners - waiting
Yeah, I see you...
Daily unravelling, a preoccupation with what is and what was
Piecing together what will be -
Do the dreams of expectations past fill the cracks of today?
Will that childhood vision be remade?
Will integrity crack and break the other life
The other life that tried, that wanted to be shaped
Shaped by better dreams, other dreams, alien dreams
Things - important things
Oh the mundane, fighting for reality
Webs in corners, forgotten youth's revelation
that first flush of spirit wrapping warm arms around dreams of flight
The long slow walk from freedom to the new man
Yeah, I see you - now
When the dust has settled, the expectation gone
When the tired heart lets go -
Do the dreams of the future fulfill past achings
Will the honest heart find honesty
Will life crack through Pharisee bones
To find new shapes, new dreams
Familiar dreams, childhood dreams?
Washing and dust bunnies, grey drops and webs
Backdrop the spotlight of hope
