Undiscovered Genius Syndrome – Written June 2015 (Aged 40)

Undiscovered Genius Syndrome

i am amazed –
by the dishonesty
and,v the reality
people think they live in
we were twenty something once
and now, here we are
many years on
are you still waiting –
for genius to come along?
back in the day
far far away
we all wanted to be found and discovered
we all wanted to be different
and now, years ahead
to be no more than we feared
as regret and what if takes you to bed
but, was it so good then?
i am amazed –
by how selfish some people actually are
the desire to shine
the desire to be have ‘genius’ recognise
i am sure, it burns inside

James Garratt – June 2015
