The Taunts – Written September 2007 (Aged 32)

The Taunts

the taunts did me no good
when you go through childhood
being made to feel isolated
and somehow different
or somehow not fitting in
the taunts, when they begin
the ones that push you,
because people do not understand
no one needs the taunts
what they need is a helping hand

James Garratt – September 2007
