I’ve used my poem “My Shovel And I” to create the lyrics for Avidity . I hope you like it!

(Performed by Zoolon)

When life throws up roadblocks
I don’t sit around
feeling sorry for myself
or letting the grass grow under my feet
 
An avidity for life
that’s me to a ‘T’
you’ll find me with my shovel
carving the earth before me
 
—————
 
You’ll find me with my shovel
carving a path
across vast fields
venturing forth into this view that I admire
 
An avidity for life
that’s me to a ‘T’
you’ll find me with my shovel
carving the earth before me
 
—————
 
When life throws up roadblocks
I don’t sit around
feeling sorry for myself
or letting the grass grow under my feet
 
An avidity for life
that’s me to a ‘T’
you’ll find me with my shovel
carving the earth before me
