Success – Written Sunday 6th January 2002 (Aged 26)


it is guilt with a suit on
masks the insanity
that plays inside my head
and those that you scoff at
will soon be those moving ahead
does not leave failure for dead
it is just hiding around the corner
is not really the bank balance
a successful bank balance
is owing the banks nothing
and not using them
do not let big business take you
working is hard enough
its life without a hung up past
it is not worrying
if the days move too fast

James Garratt – Sunday 6th January 2002
