Common Sense Needed

Why do they need to be told .Why do some people have to be Told . Are they happy to live a lie . Why have to be told and wonder Why . If you think you can Catch  a Disease . Why wonder if or not do we do things to stop it Or have we forgot . Use your Common  Sense . Ware a Mask

A Parent

Parents watch and Pray has they Grow Older . Their Children never suffer . There will always be a shoulder . To be able to to  put your Arms  around them . To always be there . To love them . To hold them . To care when they are hurting . To help when they are sad , To even be the Strongest of all . To keep them safe when they may Fall . We try to keep our strength when things are making us sad . ...

Thoughts just keep on coming . No matter what time of the day . Every minute a thought . Every second I pray . I write my words down . Either a smile or a frown . My thoughts forever thinking . My mind forever flowing . Sometimes to be found Interesting . And Sometimes Useful when Writing my Thoughts Down .

Every Morning

Every morning when the birds are singing . They answer my calls and sing me a Song . You feel all is well . What ever they are saying . What ever they feel you can tell . They bring joy . And happines for all . When whistling there tunes . From near or far . What a reaction . O what a Joy .

Everything I ever wanted . I could never have . My mind was changed excuses made . My life put on hold . No comfort was gained . A lifetime of waiting forever Blamed . Could it be me . Or should I have changed to please all people . Or just played along . By thinking all are right . And I am wrong . By choosing this life and keeping strong . Everything I ever wanted . My memories lasting forever ....

Never in a Month of Sunday’s

 I never thought I'd see the day  . When other People from all over the World . Would betray Britain  . The feeling hurts deep in my Sole . Britain has welcomed all . Taken care of all . Then blamed for the cruelty placed on those from other Countries . We don't allow weapons . We won't allow many things . But what we have allowed is the misuse of our caring . Our care comes without issues . Our U...

Party political

They can't help themselves here we go again . Had enough of politics and unions we don't care about and definitely don't Trust politics . Our lives are hard enough without labour using our children to score points .

I'm not thinking they are black or white . If they are dealing drugs . Or abusing our children I don't care what colour they are . If they are doing  Somthing wrong . They should be punished for the crimes they Commit . I do not have Insomnia . When I write my words it's because I'm awoken by people dealing drugs outside my home in cars . Our children being forsaken . Young girls being Raped and n...

All Lives Matter

All lives Matter . How cruel are you . Protesters who Eles will you blame . Blame on Blame . Blame someone else for spreading the virus . How cruel are you . How many more are going to loose their lives because of protesters . How many more people have to Suffer because of Attitudes . We all have to live and breath . Be Thankful for our lives . And not be Cruel to one another .

Before four in the morning . A chorus of birds . Singing all is ok and we're happy . We are Fighting we're alive . We're bringing you joy . We're bringing you hope . We're calling all others to feel like we do . Happy to be alive . Happy to be happy . Happy to do what others can do . Sing out loud and be Happy .

Keep Loving

I want to put my arms around them . I need to do it my Arms I can trust . My Arms were ment for loving . To take away all the pain . To Help when they are lonely . To Reach out hoping to stop the pain . To be there when loving is all you can give . To be there when needed . To hug alway all the hurt and the pain . Giving all you can give . Don't let this journey end in hate . Our Arms must Reach o...

A New Day Is Dawning

The Birds are alive Conversing with one another . Their faint little tweets like music its self . When this sound is Recognised . It's a sound of life . A new beginning . With lives lost a new life . A future and hope . For all to forgive . A New life is born . We try to forgive . We have to forgive . Without life . We have no beginning . Within Life we Will Forgive .

Our Thoughts Are With You

Our thoughts are with you . Our prayers are there . For all to use . For all to share . To help us through . These Cruel Times . To keep all safe and keep us Alive . The Worst thing is not knowing . From we're this Viras Came . Destroy it Radicate it forever . And then find who or what's to Blame .

Power Talks

Power Talkes . Greed Takes over . Then out comes the Scum . Mysterious In Actions . Diverse in communications . Can pull the wool over Most eyes . Without batting an Eye .

Sole Destroying

Why are Heathcare Workers Suffering . Why should they have to Beg For Coverups . To Keep safe . Manufacturers can make millions of things in seconds . Manufacturers should hold their hands up and pray . Why should we have fath in them . When all they do is hold people to Ransom for money selling their wares Abroad.

Their Nastyness with tongs  so profound . They ...

My Friends

My friends are singing a most beautiful tune . I can hear them in the distance . When sitting in my room . Before its light a faint little tune . You know all is ok when  hearing their tunes . I awake every morning before five and know when all is ok I can just carry on .  This special day comes once a year when our clock goes forward .  I Enjoy the moment thanking for what I have . The songs from...

The Faithful Blackbird

He can whistle you a beautiful song . And never fail to help you want to sing along . The first sound of the Morning . It's a welcoming sound . His songs so rewarding . His songs so profound . If you whistle back to him  . He never fails to answer back . It's like finding a new friend . You just want to answer back . It's the greatest gift you could ever want to hear . A Blackbird singing . A Bird...

Embarrassment is the ugliest word there is . To feel it you don't like it . To be it is the worst feeling you can get . It makes you feel you have done something wrong . Are you doing the right thing or is there something wrong . These feelings can cause illnesses , depression , loneliness and hate . You worry are you doing the right thing . Is there something wrong . Or is it you . Don't let it M...

We Will Survive

Tried to turn my hand to all . I've been a Spinner , A twister , A Bar maid and a Machinist . A Chocolate Technician and a Nitter . Never asked for hand outs . Never thought it was my right . I've been a carer for my mum with dementia . A Foster mum . A child minder to many . A mum to Four . Gran to many and great gran to a few . Been through Cancer traveled and seen things I thought i never would...

Seventy Five And Reminiscing

We are Reminiscing of a selfless life . Of always working hard . Trying to survive . Trying to be Healthy . Also helping when we can . We battle through . And stick to the plan . A plan that must be used . A plan to help us survive . If we don't follow the guidelines . Older people may never survive . So it's up to me and you .

All Women

I'm hurting . I'm greaving . For all Women who are betrayed . All children who are abused . All people who are afraid . Afraid to speak there minds . To seek and then not find . No help from one another when problems get you down . Afraid to ask for help . In case you are doing wrong . Wrong for being right . Wrong for seeking your rights . Our thoughts not always believed . Our lives just taken a...

We Will Survive

An Ideology against Women and Girls brought into this Country . We have got to Survive . We must keep strong and not let them win . Fight for one another. And not be accused of their failures in life . Their Lust and their selfishness . Don't let them win . Our values are worthy . Our dreams not for them . To use us degrade us . We won't let them Win .

Some Thing To Do

Every one needs something to do . If it's only tying a shoe lace or putting on a shoe . Exercise keeps you going . Keeps you healthy . Keeps you sane . Your brain needs stimulation . So you don't just go insane . Think of things to do . Write things down and forever have your say . Fresh Air will keep you healthy . Just a few minutes of the day . Sit at the side of an open Window . To feel the Fre...

Watch Your Step

Cruel people they know what they are at . Dangerous worrying saying they just want a chatt . Be careful who you talk to . Be careful who you trust . They pretend to be caring saying they want to be your Friend . Don't ever show your trust . Be weary always Think . A blink of an eye .  Always stop to think . Just don't go there  . Be brave , Be bold , Be Boisterous . Make a Noise . Tell them No the...

How Cruel Are You

Children sent into the unknown . Miles from where they were born . Miles away from home . Movement of Children in care . Cruelty at the Core . Sent away from their Birthplace . To destinations unknown . To be shunned treated with contempt . Used Abused and in the unknown . No one to love them . No one to care and Share . Without the love all children need to make them feel secure . To have a stabl...

A Monopoly Of Victims

It's easy it's covenant . Easy to blend in . Victims are moved . And planted within . From near or far it's where they begin . We should start at the beginning . And not at the end . Listen to the vulnerable and don't pass them bye . Look into what they are saying  . Don't just Deny . Who has the Monopoly and reasons why . How many are forgot and we don't even try . The Help you give others should...

Is It Too Late

Big hard man with a knife . What right have you to take a Life . A Grieving family a widowed wife . If you use a knife you should GET LIFE !!! . No more Discipline + Respect . What do these Politicians Expect . Educate our Kids befor it's too Late . Before more are  Behind the Cemetery Gate !!! .

Written By My Son Andrew Coldwell .


Condemned for doing right . They look for excuses to abuse family's struggleing . Who work hard and want more . Excuses given your Racist and should struggle . Make do and mend  . Giving in to others . A Christian Country down on its knees . Because of the greedy doing just what they please . Forgot by the Rich . Neglected by those in charge . Ridiculed by the world . An all for nothing country to...

Living in Cloud Cuckoo Land

Why should others be allowed to change laws to suit themselves . Why should others living comfortably destroy people's way of life .Why should they answer for others . When we don' agree with them . Why destroy children's  lives just to please a lust . Who is it decides what is right and wrong . And why should any one person be allowed to ruin another's life without being accountable for their Act...
