Waking Up – Written Friday 28th October 1994 (Aged 19)

Waking Up

i lived alone
with only –
my imagination for company
sitting in my chair
writing what i liked
give up the fight
sleeping day and night
thinking that the world and i
we were not right
going to sleep just to dream
thinking too much
thinking that i would never fit in
so i slowly lost touch
and passed away to oblivion
waking up to a new way
and i am so glad
all that was yesterday

James Garratt – Friday 28th October 1994
