Lost and Found – Written Monday 29th January 2007 (Aged 31)

Lost and Found

they found the approval
that was never doled out
like pocket money
instead of angry shout
like loving embrace
instead of violent clout
they found the approval
a way to be free
by bending the meccano frame
of their self built reality
taking second best
from stepfathers,
who never really love us
and who never really want us
they found the approval

James Garratt – Monday 29th January 2007
