Better Than This – Written June 2011 (Aged 36)

Better Than This

there is a thought
that maybe –
we are better than this
we compare ourselves
to others in the world
perfection –
is endless direction
and a blank map
who knows what is forwards
or even what is back
i light the lamps for you
as we go along our way
you have my number
and every word i say
there is a thought
that maybe –
we are better than this
let’s take chances
and let’s start to live




James Garratt – June 2011
