I Try As Hard As I Can – Written Monday 6th May 2002 (Aged 27)

I Try As Hard As I Can

i try as hard as i can
i am not a martyr
i am not looking for flowers
or a million thankyous
but i try as hard as i can

i respond to criticism
as if it a burning touch
i respond in cynicism
and i wonder if try too much

i try as hard as i can
is it not good enough?
left to sit in the street
with me and my luck

i am not a religious son
i am tired and craving peace
i try as hard as i can
the nest egg looks gold
because it is a lifetimes future plans




James Garratt – 6th May 2002
