All In a Days Hurt – Written Thursday 3rd July 1997 (Aged 22)

All In a Days Hurt

it is all there,
all in a days hurt
easy for things not to work
it is just twenty four hours
all in a days hurt
twelve to twelve,
including overtime
if the fears do not grow
you will go out of your mind

all in a days hurt
part of life
the struggle to survive
days spent –
in and out of the light
that sometimes shines right
it is all there,
no time for shift work
it is constant and it is ongoing
all in a days hurt




James Garratt – Thursday 3rd July 1997
