DARK DOG (BARKING AT THE WORLD)

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!

24. RESET : MAYBE IF IT STARTED OVER

 

 

It is like the coldest winter in my soul as I look around the world

I wonder how we are ever going to make it to the stars

Nothing seems to be breaking through these barriers of hate

I'm not saying we are completely innocent, how could that be?

 

It is like the spring has been taken over by the leaders and the haters 

It feels like maybe we should press the "RESET" button

Fading ever more into the darkness

 

No -one should be afraid, We all should respect each others choices

I don't want to let the darkness overtake my heart

I don't want to point fingers of blame

It is so hard to find the balance of an unsteady flame

(someone gets burnt)

 

We are all individual with individual views

But we are ALL OF THE SAME PLANET

How quickly would our differences change

If an out of planet force invaded?

 

So can we find the place that takes us to where we agree to disagree? 

Is it even possible to walk that line?

All I know is that I try to love and find light

On my journey through the gift of my life
