The Issue – Written October 2002 (Aged 27)

The Issue

i never knew,
never knew about issues
never believed in things
no matter what people believe
i am more than –
a product of my childhood
i am the sum of my feelings
never even the sum of my experience
because that does not add up
who carries the baggage
is it me or you?
who makes the best of it?
i believe in what i do

James Garratt – October 2002
