The moral of your story

Mr Benn, a man wearing a black suit and bowler hat, leaves his house at 52 Festive Road London, and visits a fancy-dress costume shop where he is invited by the shopkeeper to try on a particular outfit. He walks through a magic door at the back of the changing room and enters a world appropriate to his costume, where he has a adventure. There is always a moral to be learned from the story, before the shopkeeper reappears to lead him back to the changing room.

Mr Benn returns to his normal life, but is left with a small souvenir of his magical adventure.

As a child, Mr Benn was my favourite cartoon that aired on television from 1971 until 2005.

I just loved the idea that Mr Benn could be whomever he wanted to be depending on what outfit he chose to wear on that particular day.

How wonderful.

Who would you be if you could choose any outfit right now?

Released

The graceful ripples of the piano keys

play a melancholy sound and

poignant memories rest upon

the whispers of a troubled mind

Untamed and gregarious

A body unhealed for so long

drags fourth the heaviness

of a painful life

and unsettled grievances

The path of most resistance

A jolly public facade mask’s

raw and scarred despair

the pleading prayer

becomes a daily ritual

Unburden thee of pain

The prayer is answered mercifully

and the body is soothed

swathed in glorious surrender

returned to love

Pure and unblemished
