Not Sure of the Fare – Written Tuesday 15th February 2005 (aged 29)

Not Sure of the Fare

hard work,
hard day,
dream of another
dream of sailing away
dishonesty may be ripe
but listen to your heart
and never give up the fight
travelling here,
and being there
dream of your other
and what you have to show
sitting here,
life can take your feelings
do not let it leave you bare
there is a journey to be made
i am just not sure of the fare

James Garratt – Tuesday 15th February 2005
