Half Full Or Half Empty – Written October 2005 (Aged 32)

Half Full or Half Empty

the glass is half full
but did you see yourself in it?
just there –
on life’s in great table
telling tall tales
passing messages through cables
the glass is half empty
did you see yourself in it
just there
cracked a joe or two
do you see the good or bad
is everything new?
is it shiny, or just too dull
is the glass half empty
or always half full?

James Garratt – October 2005
