Lemon on the Truth (Originally Untitled) – Written Sunday 1st January 2006 (Aged 30)

Lemon on the Truth

the nastiness
and the venom in the words
revealed the child
rejected and hurt
never grown up
since the time
a father abandoned them
the nastiness
like lemon on the truth
so much hurt
it becomes blinding
crying out in rage
lashing out at the one
who has a key for their cage
the nastiness
comes thick and fast
it keeps on coming
forgiveness does not last

James Garratt – Sunday 1st January 2006
