Inspirations: Number One

I saw this in a sides street when I was walking down Park Street near London Bridge (the same street where the original sites of both The Globe and The Rose Theatres are, fact fans):

I Know I Have Lost

I don’t know who wrote it, or when it was written, or, indeed, why it was written. There was something about those words, written on a decaying wall, that spoke to me.

Defeat, resignation, an anonymous cry in the dark…there’s something both a little bit beautiful and  a little bit terrible about it.
