It is Not That I Think – Written November 2001 (Aged 26)

It is Not That I Think

it is not because i think,
i think i am god almighty
it is not that i think,
that my beliefs are deep and weighty
or that we toil to get it told
it is that it is rejected ,
the bareness of the soul
the thing inside,
which can be prone to the cold
it is not because i think,
i think i have the answer
it is that i think,
i am a natural dancer
i want to escape from the drink
you just ask her




James Garratt – November 2001
