liberationYou think you know me?
Well, that IS a laugh!
I am the mutating virus
The changing tides
The evening sky
When snow is in the air

I cannot be defined
Or categorised or ‘allocated’
I make and break my own rules
I freeze. And thaw
Skim and float

At once the viewer
And the viewed
I am the vandal
And the thief
Stealing your preconceptions
Shattering your illusions

Suggesting another viewpoint
Of what it takes to be human
Alive, passionate,
Non conforming!

I am the captive set free
The gentle breeze on a June dawn
My emergence was hard
I suffered to escape
My cocoon of respectability

So now I soar in sunlight

And laugh at my shadow.
