Once Again You Make the Issue Yourself – Written Monday 27th February 2006 (Aged 31)

Once Again You Make the Issue Yourself

once again,
another situation
is somehow forced onto you
once again,
it is about what you do

once again,
you have made it your story
standing in the shade
waiting for sunshine and glory
how do you do it
making sure you are at the centre
even when it does not concern you

once again,
you make yourself the issue
and you make yourself known
well now the decision is yours
a crushing moment of responsibility
from which you must decide

James Garratt – Monday 27th February 2006
