A universe away from the packed houses of eager followers
The half-empty room sits quiet in expectation.
He wears an old t-shirt, faded jeans and his heart on his sleeve.
The re-telling of memories wrapped in melodies.

In return the congregation shares their appreciation
Gentle applause ripples through the room.
A nervous glance from the stage manifests a smile
As the story behind the pain unfolds.

To sing someone else’s story does not cross his mind
This is his journey, his pain, his time.

Recently retired and now enjoying drinking coffee and looking out of windows. Flash fiction, short stories and the occasional dip into poetry. Unsure of the destination but here to enjoy the journey.
