Weakness – Written October 2007 (Aged 32)


you would never admit to weakness
in amongst the bleakness
that is why you broke down –
at the side of life’s road
with your delipidated sail in tow
you would never admit to being sad
or that once, you were driven mad
have you ever been honest?

James Garratt – October 2007
