The Streets Have Changed

​I can’t color you good anymore

I’m trying so hard

But when I explain you to others they frown 

When I explain you to me…

I have become short.

Short and sad.

I won’t beg for kindness anymore 

Because there are a million others who would give it freely.

I thought we got through the desert but now I realise the mirage. 

You want every morsel of me but I am to the bone already. 

No marrow even. 

And now the streets have changed, 

Their windows glaring 

Their people staring 

All is grey again 

And I am an ant in this world too large for me.
