The sun shines down on the cobblestone ground at one thirty.

Cars, footsteps, and a concuffany of conversation.

No scent of a nostalgic history or,

An old business too old to modernise.


Only old faces in a quiet random corner or

The side street musicians echoing

Molly Malone or the rare old times.

A new town built on a forgotten cobblestone past.


Indecisive present, undisclosed future

Coming towards a crossroad.

What part of the future can I stop?

Where in tomorrow’s world will I stay?


A wanted grip of a forgettable past.

A fleet of thoughts in an endless mind
