A Brave New World – Written June 2001 (Aged 26)

A Brave New World

what can i do,
the old me, it had to go
and this new one,
is one i hardly know
what i can do,
perception has shifted
more than a few degrees
everything feels different
what can i do,
i am a stranger now,
to this new world i’m in
everything has changed
it’s time to begin
what can i do,
the old me has left
now it’s just me and you
i’ve gained so much
it feels like a brave new world

James Garratt – June 2001
