Abnormal Gems (Originally Untitled) – Written March 2013 (Aged 38)

Abnormal Gems

i need to engage
to connect
to function
to find a way forward
i could keep –
on this course
(of course)
i need to fit in
and then stand out
i am on the outside
just fighting myself
hoping for mountaineers
so i can hang onto this shelf
i am struggling –
but who isn’t?
a life of norms
defined by abnormal gems

James Garratt – March 2013
