Safety – Written Monday 6th May 2002 (Aged 27)


safety in numbers
safety in here
no chance to romance my fear
safety in life
in the things i do
the things i like
away from the stress
the mess which has been left
safety in numbers
i feel exposed
and yet nobody knows
just how it feels
to be under the watch
of somebody’s steely stare
safety in numbers
in my own world
that does not shun me
or expose me to the cold
safety in here
even when i feel lonely and old

James Garratt – Monday 6th May 2002
