I’m always the student

I’m always the student, never the teacher
I’m always the layman, never the preacher
I’m always the labourer, never the builder
What does it take to be free?

I’m always the learner, never the lover
I must always work faster, I never work slower
I must always climb higher, I never go lower
What does it take to be free?

I don’t boast, I don’t brag
I don’t lie for a living,
I don’t climb, I play tag
I try to be giving

The rat race sets the pace
And only the dead can rest their head
From all the pushing and shoving

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
