It was the end of the job
a big do for everyone concerned 
they who were invited 
We were the last standing on the site
today was our last day working 
got a big lump of money 
with a fat bonus thrown in for my loyalty
It was held in the city center 
food and everything was laid on 
Stayed for a while had four beers
ate loads of the best beef stuffed myself
I had just worked twelve hours 
really felt very tired after a long day 
hailed a taxi as one always done when paid 
felt a lot safer as my brother was mugged three times 
in the underground ubhann I was done once dumped for dead 
jumped in the car just fell asleep exhausted
next thing I remember him wakening me up
shaking me quite hard done this trip hundreds of times
Always landing at my door looking around 
not the strangest sights that meet my eyes he says I am home 
Almost having a heart attack he demands money for the fare
I have not a clue were here is taking me
then he starts grabbing for me saying if I do not get out he will
get the police so I got out he tried to run over me 
could hear the sirens in the distance so I ran 
just because I was illegal in the country at the time 
now they are trying to do me nearly twenty years later
on micky mouse charges brought up against me 
this is the only story I know he never dropped me home
so I never paid him plain and simple in my eyes 
this is my sworn word in testimony if not in this life
I will be smiling if you reach the gates 
have you felt the pain and suffering this has put my family through 
no one ever has luck in dis honesty

Wow, what an ordeal, Liam! I can't imagine what that must have been like - I can see your heart and compassion when you say "I will be smiling if you reach the gates". There are many "Christians" that still wish misfortune on others that have done wrong, yet are unaware of the grace that saved them from their own wrong deeds. Dishonesty, as you say, is nothing solid that we can stand on.

Dear Liam, why must people bring such pain upon innocent people? I wish you had been spared that horrible time in your life. I'm sorry to hear that this happened to you. I guess without pain there would be no compassion....that's one way of looking at it. May God embrace you in the warmth of His love everyday and enfold you in His love. I will be praying that justice shall be served and that you will be free like you deserve. Keep the faith and let this make you stronger. May the angels protect you, guide you and keep you safe always. Love and hugs...D xxxxx

Liam My Mate!! This one says so much and with the truth comes the sadness and pain. Sometimes, life can be not so beautiful. But here's to better times always now and in the future!! I think the Leprechaun Choir would prefer to sing that positive song. Best Always, Gary

Some things happen in life at times..We wish and want them to be different,but its what they are. I only know one thing,if We dont have sad moments,we wont appreciate the beautiful ones. I do believe our life is filled with ups and downs,and through every chapwter in our life,God wants to tell us something Liam.Difficult momoments will give us strength to become better people..So try to see the good side of the coin even though it must be hard.deep poem with heartfelt emotions.
