I spin and churn everyday because of you:
Never resolved, the movement continues.
Unskilled now, but more wiser and clear,
I live the anxiety of organisational habits.

Over my initial MaDman-ness I survive,
Tightly gripping on to the escaping whole:
Forever observing and being observed
I speak more clearly to others of our lot.

Hearing but sometimes not heard
I have learned to live with myself:
Finding the spark of magic in who I am
Has created the peace within the pain.

Growing up,  living in the hurly-burly,
Has focused my attention to what is clear:
With your firm nurture, and echoed care,
Searching in the wrong place is now replaced.
