False Statement – Written June 2010 (Aged 35)

False Statement

an initial false statement
is made true,
not by the actions of the individual
but by society
and its expectation
the self fulfilling prophecy
where label,
becomes the only perception
actual personality
loses complete direction
a fear,
a knot in the stomach
a deeper insecurity
a self fulfilling prophecy
made into a reality
the personality of the individual
lost and pushed away
as people are forced to fit –
into the vile false statements
identity engulfed by insecurity
the damage done by others
the self fulfilling prophecy

James Garratt 2010
