You Do Not Have to Do What Others Expect – Written Tuesday 31st August 2010 (Aged 35)

You Do Not Have to Do What Others Expect

it is fine –
you do not have to do –
what others expect

there are the people –
who leave such a mess
life is full of –
sadness, gladness and madness

so when these people
with their carefully constructed lives
tell you what to do
just remember their lies

they have chosen to live –
in ways which ultimately choke
which is why –
they never understand jokes

it is fine –
you do not have to do –
what others expect




James Garratt – Tuesday 31st August 2010
