Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)

* By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Common Opinions

Alone you shy,

Alone you live,

Why do you surrender

before seeing the cliff?

Alone you talk,

Alone you walk,

Is there something in your past

which gives you any shock?

Alone you play,

Alone you stay,

Why is that you wanna maintain

a distance to be away?

Alone you suffer,

Alone you bear,

Why don’t you want your

story to be HEAR?

Gather some courage,

Tell them how you feel,

Or else in the end you wont be left

with any option but to kneel.
