HALF RIGHT

I used to be alright 
Because I’d lost my left
My other half 
Without knowing 
And I wasn’t sure of that , either 

Someone may have nicked it 
Someone without a left 
Someone without conscience 
Someone not me

Being alright is alright at first 
Because you’re only half awake 
Half of a half
Halfway to who knows where 

But you know it’s there
You can feel it 
Hovering 
In the awkward stare 
To the left of where 
Left should be 

I used to be alright 
Never thought of starving children 
Suffering until their night closed for good 
When even chewing wood 
Was not enough 

I used to be alright.........like...........
