Keep Pushing – Written November 2016 (Aged 41)

Keep Pushing

i keep going,
i always have
it is ego,
and some narcissism
no doubt
combined with insecurity
and a lack of self esteem
with compassion
and humanity
is that not,
the recipe of so called insanity
i cannot be,
the weeds that grew up
in the playgrounds and the homes –
of my childhood
i cannot be that
whatever that is
i keep pushing, keep pushing




James Garratt – November 2016
