People – Written December 2000 (Aged 25)


people change
they move on
they stay
they give you surprises
sometimes they swim away
they move up
they get a new outlook
to match the new outfit
they relax
they chomp at the bit
they calm down
they fall in love
they get defensive
sometimes they attack
people change
sometimes they swim back
they hold on
they fall then they throw
they hold on
they let go
they move in
they stay still
we all like to dream
and change the way we feel

James Garratt – December 2000
