I sit atop a lonely mountain Watching others play Perhaps I’ll get to join them Someday…   I’ll climb the trees Scrape my knees And if I feel brave Boldly march Into the dark Of some old spooky cave   I’ll roam the hills Explore the wilds I will venture far and wide I won’t […]

Some might call me barmy But I don’t like it balmy I’d much sooner be too cold than warm I was born in the winter When the weather’s icy bitter And there’s barely any calm between each storm   Walking in the snow Is tiring and slow But even the shortest distance feels like an […]

It feels like my world is circling a dead star No sun, just an endless black night With only the echo of the sound of silence It is in bleak times like these It’s so hard to find the colour All I want is to say goodnight Run away from this planet hell And watch it […]
