I am a 46 year old struggling writer who has been struggling for a great many years. After 20 years working in local radio, I moved into a new career in healthcare most recently the Ambulance Service. But in my free time, I enjoy escaping into fictional worlds and enjoy creating those worlds myself.
It hurts my heart My soul is weeping Anger, hate and fear No debate, just cancel You are not like me You are wrong You are lesser, worse Below me, they mean Difference should be explored Culture celebrated Understood and amplified I want to know you all Your dreams and mine Cowards behind keyboards Wrapped in flags and banners Nothing to say but no Nothing to ask but go Just want to attack We have only the world And ourselves Still a universe to know Around us all I am human, and so are you
English late winter Cold in the air, but peaceful Nothing to trouble Or cause consternation Life in ease Crafts and talents to show Working with hands No proforma All creation pure of heart Life in expression Conversations, cups of tea Polite cake and sweet biscuits Small village chat Friendly smiles Life in community Insulated from cares Protected from strife Nothing to distress 50p for this, £1 for that Saturday life
