Those Who Went Before – Written October 2013 (Aged 38)

Those Who Went Before

why do any of us
let ourselves
feel humiliated
none of us are perfect
but every crash
and every slammed door
surely contains frustration
that cannot be constrained anymore

never far from the surface
it is always destined to rise
and when it is on display
it tears me up inside
as as we wander
the future of our lives
we always pay the price
of those who went before

James Garratt – October 2013
