Taking Chances – Written March 2010 (Aged 35)

Taking Chances

taking chances is the folly of youth
it is the right of passage
it is how we found our way
like lambs, newly born
and just trying to stand up
we fully rode our luck
so take the chances,
that you never took way back then
because you are a long time dead
and way back when,
it is not so good when you are newly born

James Garratt – March 2010
