ALMOST A MAN

Posted: September 22, 2008 in GENERAL, WRITINGS

Staring at the blank picture
He’s almost a man
The one who stands near the opened window
Almost again
The silence of flickering mind
Seems to whisper what was left behind
No answer, just prejudice thoughts
No manner, but friendly lots.

Sitting at the fifth avenue
He’s almost a man
Pounding his heart to the moment of truth
Well, almost again
The flash of some naivety
Wakes up the neighbourhood entirely
No word, just dreams to spare
No bash, but the two who dare.
