People – Written Sunday 5th March 1995 (Aged 20)


people all around me
wish i could really care for everyone
but i can’t,
and that hurts the most
half the time i just feel lost
not really there, so scared
i do not know what to do
and when i try to help
i only end up hurting others
we are all victims of ourselves
victims of the institution
that locks away our minds
a feeling of helplessness
it is the worse one to have
when you cannot do what you want to
i wish there was something i could
but there is not a thing i can do
thinking of all of you

James Garratt – Sunday 5th March 1995
