Moments – Written Sunday 26th November 2006 (Aged 31)


no role models
no bearing on what is correct
no human contact
so little respect
fixed views
and paraphrased morals
learnt not by feel
but by coping
and not understanding what is real
no childhood inspiration
no one on one
no magic moments as a teen
first time love
to feel alive and to dream
discovering music
and losing your way
staying over
even when you knew it wasn’t good to stay
no tears in the rain
no laughter in the sun
no hurt and lover learnt pain
no expression when young
no people to love with all your might
no discovering of the road
that may be wrong or they may be right

James Garratt – Sunday 26th November 2006
