Trawling – Written January 2022 (Aged 46)


trawling through my life
looking at decisions
and, did i do right?
did the wrong ships –
sail off into the night?
i know i should be all secure
after all,
i have fashioned this future
but i cannot not help but notice
that as you get older
decisions, consequence,
really gain weight
and it can slow you down
as you correspond with your fate

James Garratt – January 2022
