Part of the Story – Written October 2021 (Aged 46)

Part of the Story

people have an agenda
so why do we believe them?
people tell you,
or allude to the idea
that they hold a truth
why believe them?
people attach themselves –
to narratives even when –
they are not part of the story
prejudice is so painful
and bias is only ever for glory

James Garratt – October 2021
