If Only (Untitled and Unfinished Piece) – Written Monday 11th July 1999 (Aged 24)

If Only

if only…
‘ifs’ are too much
regrets which you cannot touch
well if i had done this…
well if i had done that…
doesn’t matter now
no point trying to understand
just dealing with now
because this is where i am
people that have hurt me
people that have left
people with whom i shared affection
and those who had no self respect

James Garratt – Monday 11th July 1999
