Chairs – Written Thursday 18th October 2001 (Aged 26)

Chairs

you can sit on your chairs
judgement day,
was not meant to be done by three
and no, i do not subscribe
you cannot judge me,
on who i am
or what i want to be
i live for those around
and to preserve my individuality
that is my reality
you can sit on your chairs
you can crowd round
but i am the one who is swimming
you can choose to drown
each to their own
i try to understand you
but you do not leave me alone
my reasons are mine
you can sit on your chairs
heaven is now
not from ascending death’s own stairs




James Garratt – Thursday 18th October 2001
