I Try To Catch – Written Monday 29th November 2020 (Aged 45)

I Try To Catch

i try to better
but i am crushed
by the touch
of events in my past
they come to an end
but the effect seems to last
and i wonder
in a selfish way
quite where i am
people grade my resilience
but i am not sure i can
i look in
and see the broken bits
and that the things
that no longer fit
the days smashed to pieces
and endless chances
tied to endless leases
so i try
i try to be strong
and hold people up
or stop them falling back
if it is thrown
then i always try to catch
