Armour is Weak – Written June 2011 (Aged 36)

Armour is Weak

you are amazing
i think my armour is weak
i know,
of those compliments of which you speak
my self esteem
has a leak
my confidence
melts under the heat
i do want to crumble
but be humble
and not, trip, fall
and then stumble
i know,
i have quite come up to scratch
ultimate belief, i seem to lack
you are amazing

James Garratt – 2011
