Three Verses – Written Friday 11th June 1999 (aged 24)

Three Verses

i turn another wheel
i turn because i dread staying still
a world with no motion
could never seem real
it is a world of emotion and expense
but who is going to pay the bill?

i turn another wheel
there is no benefit to staying still
i try to learn as much as i can
i try to understand what it is all about
i feel people find me hard to understand
i would like the benefit of doubt

i turn another wheel
i look tired and i know i need sleep
but i will not stay still
there are invisible deadlines to meet
there are people who must wait
without ever realising, that is their fate




James Garratt – Friday 11th 1999
