Time Spent in the Shed – Written Thursday 23rd April 2020 (Aged 45)

Time Spent in the Shed

my life could be seen –
as time spent in the shed
putting myself together
and repairing my personality
childlike experiences
have left gaps and holes
they break the connections –
and limit life goals
all i have ever done –
is try to fix –
those broken parts –
of my personality
the bits that did not form
or the bits so easily bust,
and so badly torn,
a lifetime spent in the shed
can make you feel very worn
i can barely comprehend
looking at my personality
and at the bits i need to mend
i could wear with conviction
a super psychology assessment
one with absolute conviction
