Perception – Written between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Preview(opens in a new tab)


no one is going to steal my perception
i have been nurturing it
since my childhood conception
it has been my defence
in amongst teenage rejection
and adolescent nonsense
you are not going to take it away
it is like the fear we all hold
it is here to stay
we can all go away to meet you
but does it matter, what we do?

James Garratt – February to June 1995
