Others Complicate Me – Written Saturday 30th November 2002 (Aged 27)

Others Complicate Me

i am not so complicated
others complicate me
on my own,
in isolation,
when i am alone
i make perfect sense
others bring along their issues
which cause the contradictions
on my own,
i make perfect sense
dilute the juice,
muddy the water
open the sluice
let the pollution flood in
simplicity ends
and the complications begin
as a person,
as a whole
there is a lesson
that others stole
i am not so complicated
others complicate me




James Garratt – Saturday 30th November 2002
