All These People Labelled – Written Thursday 28th February 2008 (Aged 33)

All These People Labelled

all these people labelled
‘not the norm’
behaviour –
determined before they were born
i suspect –
they are true individuals
are you?
is the fear of so called abnormal
just a reflection –
of a person who is happy with themselves
what others call, ‘odd’
is how some of us actually float and bob
‘not normal’
who are they to suddenly define, ‘normal’
i suspect –
that these people are true to themselves
and not afraid of who they are
and they are not so scared of their self
are you?
tell me now, are you true to yourself?

James Garratt – Thursday 28th February 2008
