I’VE LEARNED…

I’ve learned…. That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person. I’ve learned…. That when you’re in love, it shows. I’ve learned …. That just one person saying to me, ‘You’ve made my day!’ makes my day. I’ve learned…. That having a child fall asleep in your arms is

DO NOT GO GENTLY INTO THE NIGHT

We are here for but a short time but if you are fighting against the wind of change, it can feel like a life-sentence. Instead of an adventure. It should feel like a wonderful adventure.

You Won’t Find My Worth In There…

Don’t define me by my size, You won’t find my worth in there. See no measure in my thighs, Or the colour of my hair. Don’t judge me on possessions, Or the holidays I take. Don’t wonder of my treasures, Or the money I may make. I’m a mixture of emotions, All rolled into a

HEY YOU…OUT THERE

Hey you…out there You think you’re on your own You think you are the only one Who’s gazing at their phone. You think the world is turning and you’re just stuck in time That everyone is laughing, dancing, drinking wine. You think that everyone has someone holding them so tight You think that everyone is

MIRROR MIRROR

Mirror Mirror On The Wall, I do not care if I’m big or small. You see, I found out long ago, That looking at you brings such woe. And so, instead, I looked within, And decided then that I’d begin, To see myself clear in my head, And take away the mirror dread. So now

THE SNAP

THE SNAP There is only so much a girl can take, only so much weight she will bear in silence. If you push and push, and pick and pick, and prod and poke me. There will come a day when I will stop bending and I will snap. When I snap, no matter how much

HEAVEN

HEAVEN “Follow me”, she said, “I’m going somewhere new. It’s not a place on any map, it’s deep inside of you. You can’t get there by car, or boat or any train, You get there just by feeling, by switching off your brain. It’s far beyond the madness, far beneath your fear. Under all the

FINE

FINE I’m balanced on a knife edge, running out of time. My heart’s exploding in my ears but still I say ‘I’m fine’. I’m hoping you won’t notice, yet praying that you care My world is turning inside out, no one can reach me there. I’m swimming for the surface, I’m using all I’ve left

SPINNING PLATES

Sometimes, you have to drop a few plates Watch them smash on the ground And shout, ‘this is my circus, I’m tired of being a clown… I am the ringmaster now – and I decide who stays, I decide who sits to watch, I decide who pays. This tightrope – it’s far too high and

  There is a thief, that steals people’s lives It takes people’s children and husbands and wives. It hits without mercy, it strikes without care. It wipes out your dignity, rips out your hair. It starts who knows where and strikes who knows when. It’s sometimes defeated and comes back again. The tears that have

I HEARD A LITTLE VOICE

I heard a little voice, She whispered “It’s time.

POEM: IF A STAR FELL
