Magic – Written Sunday 23rd October 1994 (Aged 19)


it is magic
it is the magic
like a symbol peace
it can be something more
fly like a dove
because you know,
you can never get enough
and if you are too slow
you will not get any at all
it is the magic,
pure magic
if you do not see that,
you are a fool
life is so tragic
it is a circus,
we all think it is cruel
whatever you want
you have got to be quick
you have got to hurry
see the magic
but please, do not worry

James Garratt – Sunday 23rd October 1994
