Understanding – Written Friday 28th October 1994 (Aged 19)


nervous and tired 
shuffling and quiet 
cold and wet
things playing on the mind 
that will not let you forget 
just keep on going 
do not let anything stop you 
find what you are looking for 
if that is what matters to you
then it is important 
to do what you want to do 
living, breathing, eating 
writing, breathing, sinking 
do everything you can 
to get where you want 
so you can understand 

James Garratt - Friday 28th October 1994
