Remembering – Written Tuesday 16th March 2004 (Aged 29)


they day came
and work loomed
what happened
to the young man
dreaming their way along the strand
to the young man
with such eager dreams
that never seemed to need a lid
i walk up to the gates
not so real
but be in no doubt
chains are what i feel
it brings out the worst in people
mini conquers,
just cannot conquer their inadequacies
what happened
to way back when
the rose tinted glasses
and girls always on the mind
searching for passes
the day came
and i wonder how much longer
things can stay this way

James Garratt – Tuesday 16th March
