I Know People – Written Thursday March 18th 2021 (Aged 46)

I Know People

i know people
more than they know
and more,
than they would care to admit
i know people
and i see their true self
the lifetimes work
which is their social mask
the enterprise,
that goes into that task
i know people
and i know what they think
and i think that they know
that sadness likes to drink
i am those people
who try to hide
their past and their experiences
under personal skies
but i see, i know,
and i can see what is inside

James Garratt – Thursday 18th March 2021
