Here I contribute some amature work from myself, a young 20 year old male from Manchester, England.
I don't want to go into too much detail, explaining the inspiration behind this writing as I would like people to receive it in their own unique and personal way.
I would say that it is a flow of my personal thoughts on friendship with the opposite sex, mankind's self important nature, the importance of individuality and yet the insignificance of individual human life within nature.
Please let me know what you think and constructive criticism is always welcome.
Thank you :)

The lights go out as the sun rises

And in the big bed we lay

We speak about the day

It's always the same but never old

 

We know our role and together we are bold

People frown as though I play a dangerous game

But you know that without you, i'd remain quite the same

 

A fish out of water or a bird in a cage?

Evolution comes into play

 

Do we go against natures will?

Should we be getting a different kind of thrill? 

 

Is it really so strange?

If life was a book would you want to skip a page?

 

And what if today doesn't hold a place for you

I know of two places that always will

 

I see so much I could never do with you

I know of so many places we would never go to

 

Nobody has it all 

And surprisingly we are less important than what you was taught

 

A crawl of an ant, more purposeful than that of a baby

but they can raise that baby for slavery

 

Sigh with gladness, cry with sadness

It's minuscule compared to water

 

On we go and on we grow

 

I'm not afraid of loosing this one

Life continues until another dawn

 

We'll change and move further from where we begun

We'll wake up but we will never see the sun
