Changed My Words – Written February 2001 (Aged 25)

Changed My Words

you changed my words
you changed the way i write
the pattern on my brain
you changed the shape of my frame
so many negatives slain
you changed the poems
they won’t be the same again
they will be different in their flow
you changed them all
you helped the child
and now the words are different
written in a different style
they will never the same
you changed my verse
and you changed my words

James Garratt – January 2001
