Beyond Vanity and Ego – Written Tuesday 6th July 1999 (Aged 24)

Beyond Vanity and Ego

to feel real
would be my only wish
it is all i have ever wanted
it is the ultimate gift
it is the piece missing
yes, it is the piece most missed
to feel real
to feel alive
and to have a point
could be all we are
all we wait for
drifters in the now
reluctant arrivals in the future
to feel real
to feel as you do about me
to see beyond my vanity
to dispense with my ego
that is what i want to be




James Garratt – Tuesday 6th July 1999
