Unexpected!

She had been a social worker many years

though there was more pressure

found it rewarding visiting senior citizens

concluded knocking on a door

her last visit of the week was unexpected

then no problems detected!

 

Remembered visiting the elderly lady before

recalling she was very frail

contact had been lost this was an urgent visit

to see if she was in distress

with no reply had a master-key to get inside

thinking she must have died!

 

Entering and calling the elderly person’s name

got no reply looked around

as if by instinct went into the small lounge

sensed she was in there

unprepared for the sight that would greet her

a primal fear within did stir!

 

She sat in a big armchair staring straight ahead

pale but appeared well

but it was several feet off the cream worn carpet

the room was cold a smell

made the social worker feel ill it was sulphur

everything after was a blur!

 

Awoke with a jolt as a soft voice close by spoke

shaking saw the elderly lady

who looked concerned and offering a cup of tea

the room looked normal

now in the armchair asleep a black cat did lay

quickly leaving could not stay!

 

From then on certain she was being followed

yet could never see anybody

her report did not reveal what she had seen

thinking she would be ridiculed

but could not forget what she had witnessed

making her feel more stressed!

 

It was a few days later her manager contacted

to inquire who she had seen

the lady mentioned did not live at that address

nor did anybody else

the property had been destroyed by a bad fire

an explanation did require!

 

Nobody was found within the burnt out shell

it was an unsolved crime

no culprit or evidence of arson had been found

flagging major concern

of course she could not give any information

causing her consternation!

 

Her mental health deteriorated she became ill

before long was committed

unable to accept that she imagined the event

now constantly medicated

yet still that feeling something evil was nearby

making her want to scream and cry!

 

Trapped in the single cell within her own hell!

By The Ruins!

By the ruins of her home the child dazed

high winds had blown it down

terrified lost the behaviour now crazed

nothing could save the town

from the force of natures mighty power

survivors could only cower!

 

Nature takes no sides without mercy strikes

that mankind cannot control

as the instruments alarm showing the spikes

millions pay a terrible toll

as leaders battle to dominate in their wealth

affecting stability and health!

 

The pitiful sight of children and adults pleading

for basic necessities of living

increases as the climate begins to destabilize

yet sharing for many unforgiving

even the images of devastation and the dead

on humanities path will not tread!

 

Those secure in their bubble of comfort and joy

should remember nature can easily destroy!

A New Born baby

Within your mother’s womb you were created

the new member of the family.

Part of a race of creatures called human beings

A baby soft warm and innocent.

From your snug protective home little child

you are born into the wild.

 

Happy birthday within your mothers arms

gently holding you with love.

Enjoying these moments as you start to grow

with security a family brings.

Bonding and protection with those who care

hoping they will always be there.

 

To those newly born may I wish you health and Joy

in a world neither mankind and nature will destroy!

Where Do I Go?

Where do I go from here a question

that maybe we all ponder.

The cost of living rises before us

how can most of us pay?

With what we earn becoming less

if wealth we don’t possess!

 

What if you’re not entitled to benefits

yet the bills still arrive!

The authorities and finance companies

often don’t care!

No concern if you actually can’t pay

debts wont go away!

 

Bombarded by how much many do earn

to you seems obscene.

You’d be happy for life when you see

what they earn in a week.

Boasting and bragging about the money

something that’s not funny!

 

Turmoil in your own mind how to pay

worry effects your health.

Wishing hard you could win the lottery

paying out on hope.

For most a dream that never comes true

as another bill becomes due!

 

Maybe life is a game of luck and chance

taking the right road.

Choices you made or forced upon you

the blame on yourself.

It’s sad if death is your only release

the only way of peace!

 

Where do I go from here surely I’m not alone

the seeds of greed have long been sown!
