Brick Wall



Frustrated lil’ boy that’s always frowning.

Out of place in school, couldn’t stop yawning.

So in year 8 I bypass school nearly every morning.

I was in a race, everyone around me slowing

Me down. Fat pockets, time for some clowning around.

Didn’t go home for days, busy counter-hopping. I’m down

Mum broken-hearted, I was a full time Clown.

Missed all the warning signs, can’t stop me now

Proud + loud, no telling me now, I’m too tall

Reality hits when I’m behind a steal door

Got to make the call:

“Sorry Mum”. I ran into a brick wall.
