Same Clan – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Same Clan

you cannot criticise me
when you are just the same
equally to blame
i am concerned –
about your mental health
you are telling me to grow up
grow up yourself
i am quite happy with who i am
you say i am a certain type of person
yet i feel we belong to the same clam
you ask me to give it all
and like a fool, i give it
now you say you do not want it
so i take it back
then you ask for it all over again
this messes with my mental health
i think,
you just want it all for yourself

James Garratt – February to June 1995
