Standing Still - Poem by Craig Turner

Walking with your thoughts,
A steady pace of ideas,
Obstacle then another in time with the birdsong,
Overwhelming imagination,
Coming through to strong,
Taking your time engrossed in rationalisation,
Takes up most of your days,
There’s another in your way.

Slowing down rushes in to existence,
Substance and realisation fight in the corner,
Putting up a barrier of resisitance,
We learn to conform ourselves in familiar,
Tought to hold back with no complaints.

The dark side pokes you in your sleep,
When its chance to dream,
Our thoughts were so clean,
Blaming another a selfish act,
Watching the wheels go round to where you could be.
