Irrational- Written November 2006 (Aged 31)


the failure is apparent
it is apparent in the fact –
you cannot even entertain –
my idea that you might be wrong
the failure is there
is is there in the childish games
the emotional immaturity
the loss of sense –
the irrationality and fantasy
the failure is there
when you pretend to be a victim
even though you never have been
you have never empowered yourself
and as a human with that in mind
you will always be close to failure

James Garratt – November 2006
