In Search Of My Own

I traveled from Essex

  to the kingdom of Wales

  in search of a family tree

 

And passing a cobbler

  I then was reminded

  what these shoes really mean to me

 

I’ve walked and I’ve walked

  and I’ve searched and I’ve searched,

  for a name more than mine on loan

 

And through leather worn thin

   these sparse clothes that I’m in

   will walk to China in search of my own
