Walking through greenery
of a path.
Panoramic vision of Andover town
It’s hard to grasp,
that I walked here as a child in a school class
with so many questions,
the unusual questions children often ask.
Now a man knitted together with reason
and a somewhat logical mind
but always we are out of step with time.
I came through here also on that fateful day when I’d lost my mind
Overcome with sadness that I couldn’t leave behind
I nearly did it, I nearly jumped
Off the bridge which stands in the middle
another ghost ,another suicide
another tragedy ,another ended waking dream.
An ending all too soon…
but I resolved to face my problems
My friend Chris thought I was going to jump
But even though the lump in my throat was massive.
My soul rode the storm inside my head
because to be alive is a wonder
everyday something to learn
and although hot tears may make eyes sore.
I will never take anything for granted
life is what you make it
and it will never be a chore
