We unfurl
Day by day
From our birth
Learn to touch
Want to smile
And we laugh
So we grow
World expands

See the sky
Why what how
Start to ask
And we trust
Won’t you shout out loud with me
Why is that, what’s it do
How do you know it’s true
We feel pain
Someone hurts
It’s unfair

We see life
No more trust

So won’t you scream out loud with me
Why is this world unfair
Why are there rich and poor
Why are some crushed when I am free
We want change
We want light
So just please shout out loud with me
Let’s revolutionise how it works
Let us all be free
No more poverty

So come and scream with me
Give us equality
We bring peace

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.
