The cost of a daughter.

The cost of a daughter.

15/04/18

It only takes one tale of love and loss.

One dead relative.

One misplaced trust.

It takes just one person with a connection to share to another that bounces off his wife, children or mother.

It takes on pill stained tear, one last minute of hope, one “are you okay?” to check she can cope.

One thought to save a life.

One share it could be your wife.

One comment they blag “I’m fine” as they lay in the bath with a knife.

It only takes one tale of love and loss.

If this was your daughter, tell me.

What is the cost?

Seven story building

Seven story building.

23/03/2018

A top a seven story building stands a seven story man. With seven story windows and a bible in his hand.

A seven story crisp packet blows way down below the street.

Where a seven story drop awaits beneath his feet.

A seven story inpact awaits with a patient curse.

Amidst a seven story ambulance the police and a nurse.

A top a seven story building stands a seven story man.

From a seven story building a bible hits the ground.
