Far Away – Written November 2008 (Aged 33)

Far Away

my old life seems to be far away
my old verse
and its melody
where once it towered
now it has fallen into the sea

my current life –
is out there and it is campaigning
it is knocking, going door to door
trying not to shoot itself in the foot
trying to build itself a future

James Garratt – November 2008
