i am the turtle

from i'm not going anywhere by chris hardy world



part 10: the resolution

my wife Victoria loves turtles. this is for her! go see her blog at turtlesvoice.com


stealthily i move through the crowd of faces
invisible to eyes, finding the spaces
what the world doesn't know cannot hurt them at all
and the world doesn't know me as i dart down the hall

i am the turtle i'm neither predator nor prey
minding my own business the spotlights turn away
i am the turtle unexciting to the brains
of the media-fed zombies that melodrama entertains

i dodge the advances and avoid all the noise
of the attention grabbers, oh boy how it annoys
why can't i just be alone with my own thoughts
away from all the crazies, untangled from the knots

I write songs myself. I record them all myself. I play all the instruments (including real actual drums) myself. I do everything myself - the only job you have is to listen and enjoy! Isn't that easy?
