Affliction – Written December 2003 (Aged 28)


people cannot tell you
who you are
or what you are
and indecision and insecurity,
will struggle –
to ever sign a peace treaty
but people –
will always provide the rich beauty –
that comes with the unknown
and before you decide on syndrome –
or affliction
there has to be a norm by which we judge
well what is normal –
some unprecedented fudge?

James Garratt – December 2003
