Feeling Good – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)

Feeling Good

i feel good, really good
you know, it can work out
and still, you do not have to question –
what it is all about
i have come so far
since i was fifteen
i have walked out of nightmares
and started to find the dream
happiness is real
it comes from within
like thoughts –
and words of sin
i have come so far
since i slid down the well of insanity
i found a way out
and now i am free
i could have not done it without –
all the people over the last couple of years
they have all been such good swimmers
so for now, goodbye personal fears

James Garratt – 1994
