Unscrew My Jar – Written Friday 8th July 2011 (Aged 36)

Unscrew My Jar

it can be hard to express yourself
to be understood
not to feel you are out at sea
clinging onto driftwood
it can be hard to express yourself
to be understood
no statue for me, no where i stood
it is endless, creating the link
between who you feel you are –
and what others think
i have heard, all the tales and reasons
and the whys of my being
the blind and the deaf
the unthinking and never seeing
not one of them –
sat on my shoulder all those years ago
not one of them did i ever know
it can be so hard to express yourself
to show who you are
collective hopes and thoughts
if only i could unscrew my jar
