Follow – Written Tuesday 5th June 2001 (Aged 26)


follow that ambition
follow that dream
it is the human condition
help it to scream
stand in line everyday
watching your life waste away
follow those feet
along the rusty street
once they were paved with gold
so you have been told
sing to the same tune
though the anthem is a little flat
keep chasing your belief
before you fall back
follow that ambition
with tired eyes everyday
follow that dream
before hope finally falls away

James Garratt – Tuesday 5th June 2001
