In this matter,

In what you do,

In whom you are,

In what you are becoming.

Where does your interest lie?

There’s so much we want to become,

So much to accomplish,

Tons of days and hours to look forward to and live for,

Hundreds of meals to eat and dine with those we love and care about.

Where does your interest lie?

Through your up’s and down’s,

Through those days when the rains will be like the other sun,

Through the hot Mondays,

As the throat burns it’s way out to your brain, for a drink.

Where does your interest lie?

The children,

Their cousins and other relatives,

Your relatives,

Your cousins and neighbours from way back,

Friends that we’ve made together ever since we got married.

Where does your interest lie?

Bettering yourself with the knowledge you didn’t have,

Practicing what you always preach in your summons,

Sharpening those small skills (as you call them) you’ve got, as you have lived on earth,

Building unto the bricks that were laid yesterday, for a better future.

Where does your interest lie?

The latest super smartphone,

The latest Lexus,

The latest scores and news from Arsenal FC,

The house you saw being advertised on TV.

Where does your interest lie?

In finding someone that loves you,

In finding love,

In finding somebody to fling around with,

In finding someone to enjoy life with forever.

Where does your interest lie?

In solving mathematical problems,

In mixing up stuff to make fascinating inventions that the world needs to end HIV for good,

In discovering why all our time in school hasn’t shaped much of us into what we hoped to be,

In learning why a gun can be very docile and dangerous, at the same time.

Where does your interest lie, really?
