I Am Not Other People – Written Wednesday 12th September 2012 (Aged 37)

I Am Not Other People

it is clear
i am not other people
out on a limb
not prepared
and i never have been
the kind of person or man
you turn to
but that is fine
other people make claims
about their thinking
i just walk to the left
and i feel like i am leaving
people seem to drink up words
irrespective,
of what they actually mean
it seems that as we grow older
childhood has louder screams




James Garratt – Wednesday 12th September 2012
