Favourite… – Written November 2006 (Aged 31)

Favourite…

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




James Garratt – November 2006
