on a sunny day i was walking on the seafront in Southend-On-Sea.

colours may be bright but the people they are not, i heard someone say,

and i did not like it.

then i remembered

what a man had once told me when i was a kid:

I can see that you’re making fun of me, he had said,

but that’s okay

because I can also see

that you’re doing it with kindness in your eyes.
