That  died before I could tell her

On the horses we go round and round,
Though we don’t go anywhere at all;
Just round and round there we go,
The rich, the poor, the large, and the small.

The children at school learning one, two three,
The students at university studying for...Read More

At my prom, I was a flower on the wall
To fade into obscurity I wanted to crawl
Shy and withdrawn
In my gown of chiffon
Scared of the girlies, I wasn't enthralled

With bare threads of our deepest feelings,

You will find laughter, tears and remorse,

and words of wisdom, prayer and healings.

Father left, 33 was she-
The mother who had raised five children single handedly
Three left the country,
Now left with her are just me and my brother, see?

Mother closed her shop
So we can focus
And to stop work is our job,
Now we're living...Read More

Premium Member Little Miss Nobody
She did not have a name.
No one knew it anyway
Or cared to know it
She looked weird

That was enough for her classmates
They did not invite her to play dates
She did not talk or laugh
She was not fun to be around

She had...Read More

Wipe the Student Loan Debt Away
Its bad enough with millions out of work
But many of those millions have loans
They struggle to make due to get out
With all they can gather together
Just to have enough for another day.

Two jobs isn't gonna cut it

Children come and children go.
And in between we watch them grow.
Through the good times and the bad.
Through happy moments as well as the sad.

We heal their hurts of body and soul.
To keep their secrets only a parent would know.

It is perhaps the hurried way I walk,
May be the manner in which I talk,
Or is it the subtle perfume I wear,
That tells a Gynaecologist is near!

I see patients sat on waiting...Read More

A dream of a sweet soft kitten,
a cuddly kitten to hold and love,
daily friendship and fun.

A dream of the morning daybreak,

I need my childhood
Where life was good
Small but huge heart
Running to Sunday school
To be filled with gospel
And memorize verses
I love my past

Unfortunately it is my future
Life harsh and rude
Huge but small heart
Running to movie shops
To be filled with latest
And build...Read More

Good Value
Jimmy went to Spain back in 84
With some of his school pupils
It was a week and cost 149
A couple of teachers went along
To keep any eye on the kids
Who were only 12 and underage!

Not allowed into the local discos
The age...Read More
