Heart And Soul Written July 2003 (Aged 28)

Heart And Soul

it is wrong to the touch
whatever he does,
but whatever he does,
he puts his heart and soul into it
but it’s never enough
if the world doesn’t even like you
and share your point of view
then everybody else must be wrong
but only you has the clue
he treads on eggshells
to ease your prissy little mind
but not matter how careful he is
he fails every time
every idea he has is stolen or took
and when it was his it was always bad
now it is yours,
it’s the best he has ever had
its wrong in all those things –
the things that drive him mad

James Garratt – July 2003
