Numb (Originally Untitled) – Written May 2006 (Aged 31)


i feel numb
and i feel scared
excited –
yet somehow not prepared
almost inadequate
of my anxiety
i am a first class graduate
i feel scared –
as if this is ill deserved
i feel shocking –
i must measure my self control
as i face my deep inside

James Garratt – May 2006
