It Is Amazing (Originally Untitled) – Written June 2006 (Aged 31)

It Is Amazing

it is amazing
how many consider
themselves to be normal
yet amazingly,
and extraordinarily
they are far from me
they do look down on me
with my dysfunctional family
ad the roll call,
of those to blame
it is quick to hand
and in an attempt to understand
they simplify,
and talk blandly of role models

James Garratt – June 2006
