The External Fight – Written June 2015 (Aged 40)

The External Fight

i am clinging to hope
which are made of old rope
mental illness,
they all run in the shadows
i do not wish to dismiss
but these days
we are all turned inside out
of intellectual highs
and truths
i am here and i wonder why
they do not feed us
why they just leave it
share this,
and post that
i see so many people
close to a situational collapse
the internal hope
the external fight

James Garratt – June 2015
