Whether or not I noticed 
The city was changing 
Before my eyes, evolving 
And it was leaving me behind 

Walking under the bridge 
The river tried to lap at my feet
I was young then, the nights 
Were long, more alive 

Lights change over time 
Now they blur with every step 
As I stagger home an adult 
Looking for somewhere else to be

Contributor's Note

I am an Anthropology student at Waikato University. I was born in England, then grew up in Hamilton. I have been writing while being an outdoor instructor and now I am gingerly taking it more seriously. I have been published previously in Takehe and Shot Glass Journal.
