Approval – Written Sunday 24th December 2006 (Aged 31)


it would appear that as a child
they starved you of approval
they over estimated your shoulders
you carried too much disapproval
and ever since then,
you have struggled around your world
battling lonely winds and biting cold
do you wonder about it all?
it would appear you are left outside
and it would also appear,
that as a child,
you did not get what you needed
is it a shame for future generation
that the message will remain unheeded

James Garratt – Sunday 24th December 2006
