When You Get to Know Me – Written Saturday 1st May 2004 (Aged 29)

When You Get to Know Me

when you get to know me
you will see,
that you cannot make pieces fit
you will see,
that it is true
everyone is different
and it is to be celebrated
not frowned upon
not classed as something wrong
not classed as an illness
mental or otherwise
celebrate it,
all shapes and sizes
when you get to know me
you will see,
that you are different to me
and rather than always retracing
you will see what fits comfortably




James Garratt – Saturday 1st May 2004
