They Will Rebel – Written Friday 1st September 2006 (Aged 31)

They Will Rebel

they will rebel
once the blanket is removed
and the truth we tell –
stops being a murmur
and matures into a yell

they will rebel
imposed labels
designed to ease pain
cause people to sigh
at their new found news

they will rebel
and leave the cold
as they grow
and as they get old
they are not toys
they not the comfort
for the home made cell
they will rebel




James Garratt – Friday 1st September 2006
