You Do Not See It – Written November 2006 (Aged 31)

You Do Not See It

i am beautiful
even with my flaws
i am beautiful
and though my dreams –
may be a balloon –
that eventually floats away
i am beautiful
though you do not know it
but that is okay
beautiful has passed you by –
so often anyway
i am beautiful
in a wonky kind of way
and isn’t it such a shame
that even i,
far as i am from perfection
but with a good heart
still could not give you direction
i am beautiful though

James Garratt – November 2006
