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!

21. WE RISE UP (WE STAND TALL)

 

You rose up again last night

bringing your darkness to our land

To try and break our souls

to make music disappear

 

I tell you this for nothing

You will hear our voice sing out

We will rise above this

You will never bring us down

 

We fight every piece of hatred

We clean every spot of blood

We stand even when injured

Enough is Enough!!!

 

So take these words

Hear this cry

See the light you took from our children's eyes  

Know a greater power is moving

 

You rose up last night

took down those lives

May the rest in peace

AS WE FIGHT

WE RISE

WE STAND
