Where Has It Gone? – Written April 2002 (Aged 27)

Where Has It Gone?

where has the confidence gone
is it hiding under stones
is it at home, all alone
where has the confidence gone
why is it the only fashion accessory –
that children do not wear
where has the confidence gone
why are you asked to believe in others
but not yourself
where has the confidence gone
there is no encouragement for us –
to be ourselves
society would rather we all be the same
or in categories it has designed
i can only guess that somebody is very afraid
where has the confidence gone
it is not the easiest thing to make




James Garratt – April 20002
