Liars And Thieves- Written October 2022 (Aged 47)

Liars and Thief’s

what can i excel at these days?
i spend every day
trying to renovate my well being
and repair my mental health
i go over,
every word i once said
and i remember,
that ever parent i once had is now dead
and in that sense,
i do not know what to do
what can i excel at these days?
when my hope,
is often wrapped around my knees
liars and thieves are drawn to people
like the oft remarked moth,
which is drawn to the flame
and these sociopaths,
drink up all of our pain
but i know i will get through
and that we will dodge these card games
i know, me and you

James Garratt – October 2022
