Concerned – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)


i was concerned
we are us
we are real
we do the things
that help us feel

i was concerned
about your welfare
i had heard,
you had decided to cut your hair
i was thinking, that’s okay
so i left you with excitement

i was concerned
and soon i dreamt
of a better time
you will always be you
a dazzling array of colours
always there, always coming through

James Garratt – February to June 1995
