The Trouble – Written August 2002 (Aged 27)

The Trouble

people who do not feel the same
i can apportion
no real blame
yet i cannot apologise
for how i feel
because as i look around
the problems are too real
people herded just like sheep
a self appointed law man
who made them the world police?
they say it is a moral issue
that justice and truth
will be the final vindicator
i cannot help how i feel
i would like to be strong
but i only have fire and not steel

James Garratt – August 2002
