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

Something Good

where do we go from here
are we close?
are we near?
is it the darkness
that we fear?
i have gold plated my tears
and given them to you
just to show what you moved
what you soothe
the mental state of my mind
looking inside
the terrors you would find
it is hard everyday
but you know it is good
when, for a while,
the ground becomes even
and you can smile
because for a short time
at least you are not struggling uphill
not playing the fool
being manipulated
being someone else’s tool

James Garratt – 1994
