My Epiphany

08 Jan

I know this road
It’s a road I have walked before
I walked in from this end
And all the way down
The church was to my left
The mosque to my right
The little kiddies school
At the end of the road stood

I thought I knew this road
Today everything has changed
I felt a tiny bit of déjà vu
As I made the same trip
The church had moved over
And taken the place of the mosque
And the little kiddies school
Now it is way down there

I stopped at the middle
And looked right back
Things looked just the same
When I started walking back
Then it occurred to me
What mum has always said
Things often look different
When you walk from the other side
