Truth? – Written Wednesday 20th December 2006 (Aged 31)


life is not true or false
right or wrong
it is not black or white
but infinite shades of grey
any simplification
and desire to label
and desire to categorise
only highlights a persons failings
there is more to the universe
than simple words
glib generalisations
and stunted emotions
when people seem to trivialise
and simplify
they are only highlighting themselves
the desire to force a world
that they do not understand

James Garratt – Wednesday 20th December 2006
