The Alpha and the Moon
"Oh, be something - you love and understand"
plays over the bar speakers.
As we sit and finish our pale ales,
we are all deep thinkers.
I can remember my childhood well.
And the intense pain of my high school years.
It all seems so long ago,
now aging is apart of my new fears.
The time, it crept by so sneaky.
I look around at my life.
The new me at twenty five.
It has taken this long just to get it half right.
As the day goes down,
we sit here together.
We have all shared similar journeys,
survived similar weather.
All that is left for tonight,
is the Alpha and the Moon.
A three block walk home,
and a hum of a tune.
