As We Walked – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

As We Walked

as we walked
we must have seen a thousand things
astrals lands
astral beings
flowers bathed in a nighttime glow
people who are counted
and things that would not grow
as we lived
we have have given
i tripped and fell
and I am lucky to have someone so brave
to dig me out
of my home grown grave
i wonder if we have ever been
part of someone else’s dream
we are not getting any taller
but there are limitations
and there does seem to be some kind of order
that is what is society built upon
should have seen them as they told her
that its time was gone
as we walked
as we talked

James Garratt – February to June 1995
