Quiet / Loud – Written September 2022 (Aged 47)

Quiet / Loud

am i quiet
or am i loud
am i far flung
or lost in a crowd
am i kind
or quite cruel
am i intelligent
or just a fool
am i my own person
or just a tool
am i happening
or not at all
am i quiet
or am i loud
am i back here
or back in a crowd
what is my essence
and what is my time
am i the crayons
or just the lines
am i darkness
or am i sunshine
am i the precious stone
or just the mine
am i alone
or doing just fine
am i quiet
or am i loud

James Garratt – September 2022
