Shadows in The Light – Written August 2008 (Aged 33)

Shadows in The Light

I should be wary of the things I write
it does not matter what you say
too many just invent what they like –
and banish the real you away
they look for shadows in the light
they look for confrontation
even though you are too happy to fight
I should put down on paper who I am
words look different to everyone
especially those who do not understand

James Garratt – August 2008
