It’s Not Good Enough – Written March 2013 (Aged 38)

It’s Not Good Enough

i listen to people
and i am deeply moved
who have climbed ladders
or hid under the covers
will never know
my own pains
and yo yo mental health
but it is pushed back
by the lack of respect
how these people feel under attack
we are made to feel worthless –
too many times
and it is not good enough
but there is a question –
we can never answer
that never quite makes it to a revolution
and the reduction of our wheels –
can never hide –
how we truly feel

James Garratt – March 2013
