Favourite… – Written November 2006 (Aged 31)


it seems one child is,
will it be the same for me
with my family
one child smothered
one child blamed
the past uncovered
the past o tragically insane
one child told
before they walk
common sense thinkers
without careful thought
it seems that one child is
one if rejected
one is starved of confidence
and cruelly suspected
that is exactly how i knew
i thought of rejection
and favouritism
that is how i knew
how to access that kind of prison
