Poetry writing

A selection of the poetry produced by clients who attended the Community workshops in November 2009.

If I had one wish? I wish I’d never married him. That was the start of all my troubles. Happy ever after? Not to be. The medication made me put on weight. My husband did not like fat women. He wanted me to stay slim. That was his ‘happy ever after’

People friendly
Working, laughing
Harmony, here
I have a scar
Everyone has scars
Old Scars, new scars
Bringing back memories I don’t want

Hill End?
Tall concrete tower
Water dominate above
Brick barrack buildings

On a dark and gloomy night
I watched the tear drops fall
I thought how unfair my life is
Living in sorrow
As I looked back into the past
I remember the happy days with my family
Sometimes I hear their voices echoing
I hear them in my dreams
I feel them in my mind
Sorry… Sorry… Sorry my children
I’ll see you in heaven
