Personal Storms – Written August 2011 (Aged 36)

Personal Storms

i weather the weather
i stormed the storms
and now i feel better
yet i still feel torn
i have felt ill,
for quite some time
and no one knew,
the contents of my mind
and they do not know,
that sometimes,
i do not feel as positive
as i should
i armed my arms
i harmed the harmful
i took a bounty
i staged a stage
a full on farcical force
that knew how to play
and at last,
i know my role,
and i knew in which role
i had been cast

James Garratt – 2011
