In the hold

In a changing world 
you stand still 
as if this proves 
something true 

you just got this 
feeling from childhood 
nothing since 
has felt as good 

And everyone is cursed 
everyone condemned 
you expect the worst 
sent from heaven 

and one day will come 
the love and vindication 
sent from god 
or other places 

in the meantime
we have to work together
you the blessed
I, the damned 

side by side 
in this endeavor 
for the good of 
everyone else 

it’s a great ship 
that holds us 
it moves slow 

I leave the navigation 
up to you 
while I do 
my work below

◄ I’m not what I used to be

This is your human ►

Cheers, Martin. I’m just the customs official. The inspiration comes and I just pass it on. Not sure who does quality control, but I’ll check into it and get back to you. Best, Bob
