From childhood to adulthood

Posted on 28/06/2013 by admin

Being born is where it all starts,
With a child’s pure and tiny parts,
Into the air and light of the world,
Parents and family who should be so proud.

The steps through childhood begin,
To grow in mind, body and soul from within,
A time to feel valued, encouraged and safe,
Wherever in the world this experience takes place.

The big steps to crawl, walk and run,
Make sounds, talk, sing and have fun,
When dreams are fresh and full of innocence,
Awake to the tooth fairy and find fifty pence.

A time to feel secure, nurtured and happy,
A time for worlds of imagination and fantasy,
A time for creativity, laughter and play,
With a carefree attitude each and every day.

A time to absorb, learn and grow,
To flourish, shine and let everybody know,
With all this being surrounded by love and care,
No other experience can compare.

With one act this is all taken away,
That innocence and pureness gone in one day,
The joy and happiness of childhood soon fade,
The foundations of confusion and pain have been laid.

The world now looks scary and the light turns to dark,
With only an uphill struggle to embark,
Welcome to adulthood without any say,
How cruel for someone to take childhood away.

I Had A Volcano Within

Posted on 12/11/2010 by admin

I had a volcano within,
It came from nowhere,
Unforeseen, unreal, unbelievable,
Discriminating us – without a care

I had a volcano within,
Permeating all my veins
Eroding, erupting, cascading,
Invisible – my internal pains

I had a volcano within,
Dazed and scared to share,
Unbelievable, disregarded, ignored,
Does no one but me care?

I had a volcano within,
One day the time will come,
Professional need proof, disclosures, words
But I just know coz I’m a mum!

At Last I made it through

At Last I Made It Through

The uncertainty of the future

the day that I was told

was like walking down the darkest alley

without a hand to hold

Hopelessness and fear took over

more than not I’d say

thank you for the people

that helped me through each day

I just can’t help but wonder

if he’ll ever see

the injustice that he did to her

and to our family

I wanted no regrets

as to how I helped my baby

so I tried to take control

because I thought just maybe

Maybe I could do this

standing on my own

then I felt you gently nudging me

I knew I wasn’t alone

You’re love for me is deep

pursing me no less

so I’d give in a little

and you would give me rest

I finally gathered up this burden

and handed it to you

all things fell perfectly into place

at last I made it through

You Lord, are worthy of my praise!!!
