I don’t have all the answers, it’s been such a roller coaster

And I could probably have done better……

What if the story ends and there is no clear winner

Will it be any brighter…….

So small that I did not even think about making it greater

The world that you will be joining for ever…….

How about you thought it was too sinister, darker than expected

And that’s why you hated…..

Speak up from the inside and tell me how to surf this gigantic tide

I guess its maybe time I swallow my pride…….

I suppose it would be right to drop the pose and make a pause

Oh how much I would give to still believe in Santa Claus……

The clouds talk to each other but leaving aside their brusque manner

I wish I would have understood sooner there was a little man

Inside her

Intensely beautiful Pascal Derrien. Thank you. I think your comment in #5 is a great footnote.

Franci\ud83d\udc1d Eugenia Hoffman many thanks for the compliment, this one is cathartic, cryptic and probably more conceptual that what I normally do, a kind of exchange between the songs and the short paragraphs I hope :-)

Pascal Derrien Intriguing and multi-faceted Pascal. Perhaps the questions in life are more important than the answers - as per my interpretation of your poem.

Some things are not meant to be if only we could see; the why, the how and now. You have an intriguing and meaningful way of expression, Pascal. I enjoy your style of writing.

Ditto Dean's comment, Pascal. And to misquote from Best Little Marigold Hotel, "Everything's always right in the end, and if it's not right, it's not the end."

nope this is a story about miscarriage and things not meant to be..... or maybe a more general take on the world and widely open to interpretations, I mixed two different personal stories not related in time and place but in the end it is what people want it to be :-)

Our life's path is full of light and shade, Pascal. Heavy words from a heavy soul and also very moving rendition by both Rag'n'Bone Man and Jacob Banks. But .... when all's said and done ..... tell them, "She'll be right, mate!"
