“You remind me
Define me
Incline me.
If you died
I'd.”
Lemn Sissay

“I think I'll paint roads
on my front room walls
to convince myself
that I'm going places”
Lemn Sissay

“Food from the platter / Water from the rain / The subject and the matter / I'm going home again / Can't sell a leaf to a tree / Nor the wind to the atmosphere / I know where I am meant to be / And I can't be satisfied here”
Lemn Sissay, Rebel Without Applause
