Do The Children Need Your Labels? – Written Thursday 21st May 2009 (Aged 34)

Do The Children Need Your Labels?

will the children be thankful for the labels,
you have given them to wear
will they hunger for love
will they hunger for –
compassion, understanding and your care
will the children race to the end
full of confidence, negotiating life
fully able to take the bends
will they fly their kites
with the very best of friends
will the children be thankful –
for the start you gave them in life
will it be two steps forward and one step back
a search for their own identity
but with such a terrible, ‘handicap’




James Garratt – Thursday 21st May 2009
