Others Need to Shine – Written November 2013 (Aged 38)

Others Need to Shine

i do not push
just stamp
but i should push
when push comes to shove
it is,
not enough
others need to shine

i do not manage
but i think i cope
at least i do not have to –
feel the punchline of the joke
i do not push
others will trample
or stampede
my doormat is weary
and not ready to recede

James Garratt – November 2020
