Feel Less Afraid – Written Monday 21st June 1999 (Aged 24)

Feel Less Afraid

feel less afraid
feel almost solid
feel good for yourself
understand what you mean
the compromises can be hard
do not compromise your dreams
feel less afraid
find more self esteem
keep up your good work
hang onto others
take chances with friends
take days out again
feel less afraid
less than the darkness of your sky
less than the reasons why
come into the open when needed
be all that you can
your best is always your own
need not worry if we do not understand
never feel alone

James Garratt – Monday 21st June 1999
