A Limited Amount of Days – Written November 2012 (Aged 37)

A Limited Amount of Days

the needs and wants
the gap between –
what we want and what is
sometimes,
we do not always –
get the perfect gift
you can talk about it
till the light begins to fade
but we only get –
a limited amount of days
accepting our realms
and what we are
it is the journey-
that never goes too far
left as we are
with an empty piss pot
that we should fill up
but with what?
with dreams?
of which we never truly know
the needs, the wants




James Garratt – November 2012
