False Impressions

Peacock fans feathers
Assuming authority
So far from the truth!

Substantially flawed
This mock display of grandeur
Belies neutral fact

For ego can’t match
The actual ugly facts
That are now exposed!

Despicable fool
Unable to hide his guilt
Despite full plumage

There’s Never Any Reason

There’s never any reason
To beat a little child
To smack them, whip them, hurt them
To leave them so defiled
By physical aggression
Or psychologically
To steal away their human right
To live a life that’s free
Of harm and exploitation
For each child has great worth
And each adult should protect them
Enhance their walk on earth
And pave a pathway forward
That’s full of love; that’s fair
That helps them prosper and grow up
To know somebody cares

Treat Him Well

If you treat him with contempt
Then that is what you’ll get
If you treat him with hated
Then he’ll learn and then beget
Ways that flow against the tide
That drown and then submerge
His will to walk a righteous way
That set him on the verge
Of courses that might navigate
Away from good to bad
That fill his heart with rocks and stones
And bitterness so sad

So treat him with compassion
With empathy and care
So he will mimic truth and good
And go right out from there
Imbued with truth and honour
Inspired integrally
With hope for better days ahead
A good trajectory
Soaking up the joy from learning
With a heart to contribute
Feeling the pat right on his back
And not the kick from boot

Resurrection 

I had a dream where grass was green

And sky was always blue
Where lambs frolicked in spring decked fields
And peace was all on view
I had a dream where love survived
The heartache and the pain
Where shackles of my broken bones
Released; threw off the chains
I had a dream that justice lived
With truth and honesty
Where bully and abuser left
And only good reigned free
And then I ‘woke’ all stiff and cold
With hole shot through my head
I realised I was in my grave
Beat blue and left for dead
Yet with the resurrection might 
Those dreams of better days
Will lift me up and take me on
Right out of his harm’s way 

Justice (Or The Lack Of It)

Justice has a new face
A face that makes one cry
That stifles truth and honesty
And makes the children cry
That leaves them feeling empty
That starves them; leaves them cold
That takes the clothes right off their back
Deprives them not of gold
But of a faith in reason
That adults really care
For justice gives the answer it’s
A real cruel world out there
And that those who are in power
Allow dishonesty
By letting off the bad in life
To hurt them constantly

The current legal system in the UK is failing our children allowing perpetrators to slip through the net despite behaviours that add up to neglect and abuse.  With the loss of legal aid, the government has left thousands without access to fair access in the court system and without the power to untangle the mesh of red tape and bureaucracy in the current system and the lexicon of legal speak, the said perpetrators are getting off scot free, walking away with smug contempt to continue their abusive and neglectful behaviours!  This is evidently called reform! What a mess!

Embracing Second Chance

Do you honestly think I’d trust you
After all you did to me
Do you think I’d take the time to walk
Over that old territory

Do you think I’d want to talk to you
To hold your hand again
To give a little more of me
Or friendship even feign

Do you think I’d go over old ground
Or stop to say hello
To brush under the carpet tiles
All history in one go

For what is done and what is said
Is etched in heart; in mind
So don’t expect me to forget
How you were so unkind

But know that I am so resolved
To turn my back on you
For all you were must dissipate
Be washed out in the blue

Or would that be the murky grey
The pit of wanton lies
Whatever, now I won’t return
And let the past just die

Take lessons learned and not digress
Be firm with foothold sure
To never let you seep back in
Be true to me once more

And then I’ll look to see the sun
Feel warmth against my face
And live life as it should be lived
A second chance embrace

Disappointed

Disappointed was the best word
Upset too strong
Let down too weak
Just plain disappointed
Trust betrayed
Hope severed
Promises broken
Saddened maybe
Frustrated definitely
Disillusioned almost certainly
But disappointed just seemed to sum it up
Disappointed!
That word hung heavy
They simply didn’t deserve him
He neatened his tie
Sighed
Picked up his books
And left
Never to look back
