Think On For a While – Written October 2002 (Aged 27)

Think On For a While

my world,
it is everything
sometimes harsh
but everything i want to be
and it means,
everything to me
it is my sail,
my brain, my life
my wrong, my body
my left and my right
it has always held me

my world,
it may mean nothing to you
it may be worthless
its content,
shallow and selfish
holding nothing like a true wish
but it is my most precious possession
and i gave it to you
only you, no one else
i let you in
and i have never done that before
so when you ask for comment
think on for a while

James Garratt – October 2002
