Ten Years Time – Written Saturday 20th October 2001 (Aged 26)

Ten Years Time

living in the past,
so dangerous,
riding bicycles
in a lane designed for a bus
it is too much
living in the past,
so dangerous,
it is not like memories fade
but they change
to appear happier than they were
and you know somehow,
in ten years time
we will only be looking back to now
and saying how great it was
living in the past,
you are about to set sail
not chained to the mast
you are not here to fail
living in the past,
in ten years time
we will be saying this time did not last
and all this, now, was so fine




James Garratt – Saturday 20th October 2001
