Difficult – Written Wednesday 11th January 2006 (Aged 30)


it is difficult
it is sometimes strange
you hold me once again
i should know better
by the rule of the letter

it is difficult
all my life
i have fought those
who have sought to hate
and only ended up,
fighting myself

it is difficult
different does not mean illness
condition, disorder,
or even syndrome
likewise for individuality
although they may leave you alone

it is difficult
but the the world,
is a different place
and without life experience
it can be an empty space

James Garratt – Wednesday 11th January 2006
