Just Sometimes – Written August 2008 (Aged 33)

Just Sometimes

it is easy to sit down,
and cry for this senseless world

it is easy to hear a piece of music
read a book or an article
and cry for this beautiful world

my emotions flow
i am a life force
and i refuse to go
or is it,
i know how to silently glow
and i will wear my heart
on tear stained sleeves

it is easy not to believe
and it is too easy to cry

in a world of multiple stories
and vacant truths
it is too easy to cry
but if we look at our beauty
maybe there is a chance to try

James Garratt – August 2008
