Lens Flare – Written Wednesday 26th August 2020 (Aged 45)

Lens Flare

the film –
is exposed to sunlight
lens flare –
alters the nature of care
the stories –
are made true
because they believe in themselves
and not the me and you

i develop –
and catch my view
once upon a time –
i envied people like you
but with maturity and age
i see authenticity and integrity junked
those type of sacrifices made
here we are
over exposed
and under used
you cannot mask the current crisis
or that people are scared and confused

James Garratt – Wednesday 26th August 2020
