Family Way – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Family Way

someone made her tummy grow
seems like she is in the family way
she will be out soon
thinking of yesterday
someone told him a lie
and he cannot believe his luck
does not want to die
so they held each other tight
and instead, they decided to cry
he does not want to leave her now
he wants to make her life better
got to do it, got to do it somehow
its not as if he does not care
but it gets hard
why was he chosen to be there
and what words should they say
now there is much more to share
seems like she is in the family way




James Garratt – February to June 1995
