How Fortunate – Written Wednesday 2nd June 2021 (Aged 46)

How Fortunate

how fortunate –
to find yourself never called upon
never –
having too dig yourself out of holes
never –
having to set yourself the hardest of goals

how fortunate
that, family, friends, partners, job roles
have not caused you to step up
or even step out
my cup of compassions as they say –
has not, ‘runneth’ dry
my bottle of empathy has spilt too early
and it is no more

how fortunate that can, ‘sock it to the man’
with your radical social media presence
how very fortunate…

James Garratt – Wednesday 2nd June 2021
