Hard Task – Written Wednesday 16th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Hard Task

it is cold in the rain
and when the sun –
does not shine down
and i cannot find my shoes
there is –
nothing really good around
what is new?
is it true?
is it you?
it is strange in town
with no one around
a sunny afternoon
and the sun setting too soon
back home
to a waiting tea
i will will tell you
all about the spirits and me
i begun where i lived
when i was young
i showed that i loved the past
but as much as i clawed
the good times do not last
and it is true, i got so bored
finding out life is a farce
and it is a very hard task

James Garratt – Wednesday 16th November
