They didn’t speak a word, they did not shed a tear, they were as quiet as a bird, as still as a deer.
They did not make a sound, nor a chirp or a tune. Their feet on the ground, they’d have to move soon.
Not a girl or a boy, like a genderless toy, they stay in the woods, masked by their hoods.
Not a hood you can see, not you or me. These hoods mask who they are, behind sticks and leaves, they travel far.
A body full of life, just cut the sticks with a knife,
Not everything is as it seems…
We were moving very fast when they caught up with us, it’s not like we didn’t try. I couldn’t run anymore, not one step. So when they pass us, I feel a wave of disappointment rush over me, what would people say? Would they forevermore turn their backs on me?
NO I’ve made it this far, I can’t put myself down without a reason. But that doesn’t change the fact that they passed us, or the fact that I can’t run another step, it may be the Olympics but it does change the fact that we’ve only lost a silly race
It came down the drainpipe, down, down it went.
It landed in my outstretched, shaking, hands, everyone around me gasps, I don’t care.
I cup it in my hands and walk inside, locking the door behind me.
I lock all the windows and close all the curtains. They will not find me, they will not find it.
The last drop of water in the world lays in my shaking hands.
Slowly, but surely the crowd goes away,
Slowly, but surely the sun starts to set.
I have it, I have the last drop of water in the whole, wide, world.
