Another Year – Written January 2001 (Aged 25)

Another Year

getting older
another year
thinking about this time next year
will i be here?
another year
where dreams walk the pavements
and stay a few steps ahead
be optimistic
let those bubbles be fed
it is my birthday soon
moving near to thirty
that is an unknown room
it will throw me to the floor
another year
nothing beautiful
is ever truly clear

James Garratt – January 2001
