Space That You Occupy

Tone the hue a little lighter, Believe me its so very murky to sight, The dark cloud envelopes all you do, And no one can possibly get a clue, Its almost apparent that…., When you do hide all and sundry, And slip away from locales unnoticed, In the sheer hope that they will search for you thereafter, Perhaps shattered expectations have not been teacher enough, Did they ever call you from behind, And look for you, Perhaps more often than not they did not, Your “tonnes” of caution and whispers, Did not even produce a difference of an “ounce” for them, It was just about the same had you been freer and open, And made full bold use of all situations and kinds, Why sit tight and leave space for others, Society has given you much more, Go ahead and run the full shore.
