Unfolded – Written October 2006 (Aged 31)


i have seen life
unfold in all its glory
and i have seen progress
from my own god’s hand
so much i have seen
so much i do not understand
i have come from beyond
and i have drunk all the seas
i have seen humanity,
as it shone,
then i have seen humanity
when it has gone
i have seen the spirits
come through the lives
of those who have left this place
i have seen my life
and the glory that comes
that lies within
you stand up and be counted
and you will see where it begins

James Garratt – October 2006
