'[I'm] a monkey in the jungle
Watching a vapor trail
Caught up in the conflict
Between his brain and his tail'
'What I know, is that I don't know
And now I dance and I sing and I live full
I give it all to the call of the unknown'
'Hou op om fokken rond te kyk
Jy's hier om te dans'
(Stop f'n looking around
You're here to dance)
'We hold the light we overcome
We are the power
We are the legends
We are in a beautiful place'
'That's the birth of responsibility
You can always look over your shoulder and say
"Well, I am the way I am because my mother dropped me
And she dropped me because she was neurotic
Because her mother dropped her"
And way back you go to Adam and Eve
Or to a disappearing monkey or something
We never get at it'
Confused? Don't worry, me too.
But I've learnt to live with that.
I've put together this website to capture some thoughts on this rich and sometimes scary experience of life. I've been hesitant to share my writing historically because I've been afraid of what people will think, but then I realised that I don't need to care what people think. Life is one long lesson, if nothing else.
Anyways, one thing I can say is that I hope you find some value here. If you do, drop me a mail - it would be great to hear from you 👋🏽
If you enjoyed some of the music above (or even if you didn't), maybe you'll enjoy some more beats.
You're welcome 😉
