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

Roman Road

how do you see life
how do you take it
how do you make it
do you see it as a roman road
always straight
nowhere to go
or is it country lanes
great scenery
and so much change
do you get up everyday
and want to achieve something new
or do you sit at home with hamburgers
and just chew
how do you see yourself
as a person who can never –
have what they want
or at least as a trier –
who tries not say cant’s and don’t

James Garratt – 1994
