The Most Social of Platforms

Social media the most social of platforms,

talk to strangers from all the world

ignoring the people sitting beside you

Same Cells, Same Species

Same cells, same series, different life

Plates piled high with food, watching TV

Kids starving playing in landfill

Our rubbish, their life, our disgrace

Eat your vegetables,

Put a coat on you’ll catch cold,

I open my mouth my mother I hear

The ageing of me has begun I must fear


Dazzling Warmth0*A0n9891DA22mUVKa

Your smile is like a sunburst on a rainy day;

your smile can melt a snowstorm on a winters day;

your smile can melt my heart

 

 

 


A Small Hand in Mine

Happy is a little girls hug;

a small hand in mine;

a smile;

being a mum.

 

 

The Terrible Two’s

Don’t climb I say, she smiles and pulls herself up, the rebellion of a two-year-old has begun.


Goalsimage

Glaring fires streak the sky

On with time; reset the clock

All that life to start

Lost souls to leave

So many resolutions to break


Footprints

The innocence of children as pure as untouched snow; untainted by footprints.


Developed Society

The indifference to third world famine;

whilst we stuff our faces; which country is developed.

Hand on Hand

Her tiny hand holding my hand

Her tiny heart, touched my heart.
