Lying down in this strange bed
Thoughts whirling round in my head
Trying not to listen to the insidious voice
Asking have I made the right choice.
I’ve worked hard for this over the years
So I will fight through these tears
Living in this great big city among millions
Feeling I’m changing like a chameleon.
Shall I go home?
Is the underlying tone
But I will carry on with this endeavour
Because I know that I am clever.
I will weather this storm
Until it becomes the norm
A few weeks from now I’ll wonder about the fuss
As I’m travelling to and fro on the bus.
My phone has been my lifeline
My family supporting me in this time
My friends are constantly there
In the ether or elsewhere.
I will make new friends and enjoy this part of my life
The fun will come and I will have an adventure
So I’m going to stand tall and strong
And keep on keeping on.
