Not Fitting In – Written August 2010 (Aged 35)

Not Fitting In

not fitting in
is given a name
and not sticking
to norms
becomes a condition
and if those
giving out these names
are truly humane
it seems like
a bunch of people
who feel they are
morally right
are telling others
how to live their life
defining what is
right and what is wrong
they do not seem
that humane
especially the way
they treat their children

James Garratt – August 2010
