At This Age (Originally Untitled) – Written Friday 6th May 2011 (Aged 36)

At This Age

it feels like,
that at this age
i have spent years
doing things back to front
making it awkward,
for myself
surely i could be average,
steady and average
i looked at somebody,
the other day
and i thought,
i always crave
that stability of personality
rather than this extreme
well plauralise that
and then any dreams
it feels like,
i cannot keep doing this
in this way
i know that you understand
let’s, together start a change

James Garratt – May 2011
