Retrospective 57

Such a little difference

The places we went

All the history I learned

The things you got to do

The things you got to see

Such a little difference

The lives we have led

All that we have become

Broken and fooled

The world thought I would win

 

Such a little difference

The advantages apportioned

All the history I made

The things I got to do

The things I got to see

Such a little difference

The lives we will lead

All that we will become

Twisted and scared

The world in which I never win

 

Such a little difference

The words to hear

All the experiences and fun

The things we both did

The things we got to see

Such a little difference

The lives we still dream

Everything still to come

Hopeful and proud

The world knows I will win

 

Such a little difference

The advantages given

All the future to claim

The things you have done

The things you can own

Such a little difference

The things I still mourn

Everything good now gone

Wretched and unhappy

The world thinks I will win

 

In the long-term

When it is all said and done

In the longest term

It is the ones below who rise

The meek lose it all

The angry claim the prize

Such a little difference

The past cannot care

The future is mine again

You know I will win

 


Written in the smallest hours of May 14th 2011 (GMT).  The 'humour' category might perplex some but, trust, this is highly amusing if you know who it was written for. I think it works all the same, the words flow nicely in my head at any rate. I hope you like it and if you don't I hope you have a good chuckle at what some people will attempt to pass off as poetry. Also, genuine apologies to the proper poetry nuts out there - I have never given a damn about metre or tetrametre or whatever else it is you call the ponderous and non-musical assault that is modern poetry - I just think the words hang well together, like pretty teenagers. That is all that matters.
