Alien Force – Written Sunday 23rd February 2003 (Aged 28)

Alien Force

life is alien force
because it grabs you by the hand
and it pulls you through doors
life is on a mission
because you’ve got to make the choices
maybe compromise the position
call a friend,
someone who will listen
it is out of control
and life has its hold
life grabs you from behind
and it can open your eyes
even if you rather remain blind
life is an alien force
and it will make you smile
even if on the inside you are crying
that is the nature of life
life is an alien force
it is like learning the strangest lines
and reluctantly trading the boards
life is here and it has landed
life is an alien force

James Garratt – Sunday 23rd February 2003
