Internal Art Gallery – Written December 2010 (Aged 35)

Internal Art Gallery

what goes inside?
do their fears
have an internal art gallery
displaying works
of war torn inside hurt
does hope strike too often
and does it find it hard to work
do thoughts sneak off
the metaphorical bike sheds
for a quick analogy
are all dreams
punctured by the bite of reality
have you campaigned
to stop the bleeding cuts
do you just freewheel down the hill
or is the wheel stuck in a rut
what goes on inside?

James Garratt – December 2010
