No Time to Stop and Think – Written June 2008 (Aged 33)

No Time to Stop and Think

i go on –
there is not time to stop and think
the destruction –
of your old life is all too swift
but as the new one swells up
you know –
the opportunities cannot be missed
you have to go on
what other options is there?
life does not wait around
people ask –
how do you do it?
well, what else is there to do?
i know that road –
continues to stretch on
with many twists and turns
and if i actually stop and think
then it might be all too much
so, i go on
what else can i do?

James Garratt – June 2008
