Plans – Written Monday 13th September 1999 (Aged 24)


you make plans
but then they are made redundant
by things you can never understand
and things you cannot control
i have made plans
i have lived by carefully constructed maps
i have believed in my own security
but it is all so random
you make plans
yet life is something that you can never fathom
it throws more dice on the table
it is, so ever changing
and so very rarely stable
this is what keeps me going
the unknown and the ever growing
it is so much better than nothing
you make plans,
well i made plans
and no they have changed
and i follow different lines on my hand
and different paths on my land

James Garratt – Monday September 13th 1999
