This is My Portrait (Originally Untitled) – Written May 2011 (Aged 36)

This is My Portrait

this is my portrait
the lives,
perhaps a frame
the words, perhaps the colours
each meaning a different part of my name

this is my portrait
here it is,
somehow it is true
in the goldfish bowl
with its goldfish view
so,
pick a different view

this is who i am
well, on this day
and on this date
tomorrow may well change
and deviate on my fate

this is my portrait
the words,
a hymn to my being
the verse, the words
the hope, the feeling
let me know,
what you are feeling




James Garratt – May 2011
