Falling Sky

Tattoo on your skin
Isn’t there enough pain the world
Children draw bombs
Falling from the sky
Sky has fallen down
Weapons we sell to psychopaths
Shake hands with the Queen
Human rights in lives
Of no consequence
Parents weep
I have cried
For the loss in my life
No anonymity
Visibly misunderstood
Inaudible screaming echo my rooms
So why tattoo
Unnecessary pain in life
Unless to distract
From emotional void
Children draw bombs
I have double piercings

By Chrisssie Morris Brady

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
