G'day! I come from the land down under. I write (as you can tell). I enjoy cricket, hockey and performing.

Message from Writer

I write. I write in question of things. I write to tell stories. I write to express emotions. I write a lot.

As a baby, 
He saw the world. 
He saw through scent, 
The milk of, 
His mother, 
A guiding lamp, 
For his glazed, 
Developing eyes; 
They cannot see. 

As a child, 
He saw the world. 
He saw through the confines, 
Of his imagination, 
The monsters, 
The fairies, 
The princess in the tower, 
For his glazed, 
Developing mind, 
It cannot see. 

As a teenager, 
He saw the world. 
He saw through the glass, 
Of his bedroom window, 
He plays games, 
Ignores his parents, 
Is against the world, 
For his glazed, 
Developing brain, 
It cannot see. 

As a young man, 
He saw the world. 
He saw through his eyes, 
Awake and aware, 
Bloodshot from clubbing, 
Though his, 
Young body, 
Can handle the pressure, 
For his glazed, 
Developing heart, 
It cannot see. 

As a man, 
He saw the world. 
He saw through his heart, 
It's beating showing, 
The first signs of failure, 
He is bored, 
Though he doesn't know, 
How to change, 
For his glazed, 
Developing soul, 
It cannot see. 

As an old man, 
He sees the world. 
He sees through, 
His entire body, 
He ponders as to why, 
Humans, 
The most intelligent race, 
Must take so long to clear, 
To develop, 
For his being, 
It can see all it wishes, 
And wants to see. 

Though he feels it is, 
Much too late.
