Today I walked through you
I mean I really walked through you –
While I listened to you,
I listened to you.
But I did not see you…
I did not see the ugly, nor did I smell
I saw the grass churned up from footfall
And I think I may have met you
On an Anomolous Day…
… which made your voice all the more
Lonely to me.
I don’t really know why you’re here.
A man said “it’s because of freedom”.
Maybe you aren’t necessary.
But for that very doubt you are
Can you be necessary and not necessary
At the same time?
Can you be two at once?
I think that is the question
That most destabilises reality.
But I think it is important to Believe
Choose the reason
Choose the path
Make your own purpose
I believe you have one at least,
I believe you are necessary.
I’m glad you’re here.
I’d be lost without you,
