No Complaining – Written Wednesday 4th March 2009 (Aged 34)

No Complaining

feel scared
but okay
affection and feeling
hard to accept
sell me a memory
of deeper self respect
feel frightened
but okay
eyes open
hope no longer strayed
forging a way forward
across –
this merry looking board
feel excited
nervous and waiting
stop the boat
and the flailing
life is good
there is no complaining

James Garratt – Wednesday 4th March 2009
