Sail Yourself Downstream – Written Wednesday 10th September 2008

Sail Yourself Downstream 

sail yourself downstream
make yourself a cloud 
and then, find a feeling 
let yourself go
tell them that you are leaving
make yourself a future 
now is the time to start living
i am in and out of their life
but never their feelings 
sail yourself upstream 
when the fight dictates 
do not let your hope down 
do not leave it to wait 
drinking many cappuccinos 
sat there, in coffee bars of fate

James Garratt - Wednesday 10th September 2008
