At the start of the year the universe was calling me to write a new set of poems. I let the ideas that I had sit with me for a while and then I set about writing out what would be the storyline into what the poems would fit. It seemed the work would involve written set pieces and poetry. I was all set to go and then...... THE WORLD SEEMED TO GO CRAZY! It became clear to me that I was not being called to write out MY idea but that I needed to report on what was happening in the world and how it was making me feel.

the BLACK dog is a term used to describe depression and it a dark dog. As I started this work we are in a very dark, depressing time in the world and I had to reflect on that. So this is me, the Dark dog, barking back at the world! This is very much a live piece of work as we turn through this year. I also have my reflections in here, on my own thoughts, feelings and life. This is my heart open and my soul on show for anyone to see. It is me being brave, I hope you enjoy!






Stay strong as they try to crush your tower

Hold fast while they try to change your soul

As they try to torture your very being

Climb the rainbow, climb


As this evil takes over the planet

The world is spewing hate

Goodness is slipping under the feet

Of the boots of the devil himself


Stay strong as they try to evade

A tower they try to pull down

condemned men

They are not alone


Fly up high above

As they try to make you betray

who your are

who your friends are

so they can continue this HATE


May they reap what they sow

Into the hearts of their people

As the world faces bigger issues

Can they NOT SEE THIS?


I send a rainbow of love

Pink glitter over the land

may it cover each and every hater

cover every persons hands


Take these words to the world

Make them see the bombs filled with hate

Does it really matter who we love?

When the fire is burning across the world


When we are walking in ashes

None of what you do will matter then

Is it really going to take that?

Are we going to wait for the fallout?

before we let love back in the world


So my glitter bombs are in the air

Across the whole of the world

Falling from the sky

save it in your pockets

Use it to save their lives!
