Who would I be

By 17th March 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

If I could be
anyone I wanted to be
who would I choose
would I loose
all I had
all I did
as a lad
would it be gone
all that Id done
all the knocks
all the fun
where would it go
I suppose
I dunno
its just gone
but as I sit
on this chair
with my lads
up the stair
I get a twang
of despair
and it all
becomes clear
that if I
wasn’t here
then they’d
disappear
and be gone
just got to look at their eyes
without any surprise
I now realise
I’m not an I
I’m a we
so to answer the question
about who would I be
I’d be Me!
