What Is Enough? – Written April 2014 (Aged 39)

What Is Enough?

what is enough
for modern generations
what will,
stop us feeling sick
cure our common cold
stop our fears
of becoming, ‘old’
we are working –
our way through life
as much as we can
it is a supermarket sweep
before they cart us off in the van
we pick things,
has never truly been explained
everything becomes a prescription
for niggling pain
self doubt, lack of confidence
they are long term
and with this obtained ingestion
that always burns
what is enough?

James Garratt – April 2014
