Domino Effect- Written April 2015 (Aged 40)

Domino Effect

it is normal to feel alone
it is not pleasant
no enjoyable
but it is okay
did you know,
it is okay to feel sad
to be down occasionally
but we are taught
this is not normal
the medial turns us on each other
and it feeds us lies
other human beings compete
we must always feel good inside
of course,
there is what i call the domino effect
when it all falls down
when thoughts link and conspire
when it adds up
to leave you firmly stuck in the mire
but it is okay to be sad
none of us want to feel alone
but in life,
we will always reach those points
where we do
and that is fine for me
and it is okay for you

James Garratt – April 2015
