Senseless – Written January 2013 (Aged 37)


it is the seemingly senseless –
it is that i guess that floors me
or leaves me impossibly puzzled
or possibly just floundering
it is the sudden onset of cancer
and then death
before we had time to catch our breath
it is the person who hurts you
but cannot even acknowledge that
or even rummage around to find a sorry
all these things,
the senseless events,
the senseless people
life is about some form of acceptance
and it feels like a mighty challenge

James Garratt – January 2013
