I started writing poetry in 1995 I was awarded a editors choice award in 1997 by The International Library of Poetry . I am a Mum a Gran and Great Gran in my 72nd year and used to Foster troubled Teenage girls . My Poems will probably mean something to everyone . The girls I fostered had troubles with abuse glue sniffing prostitutation a verity of troubles . I had to give up fostering 25years ago having had breast cancer . It was hard work but very rewarding . I live in West Yorkshire . There are so many troubled children in the world ,and so many people bury there heads in the sand . We all need. To take a good look and talk out loud and do something about it . I Seem to have been fighting all my life could not spell very good have taught myself to use a computer not very good but I try My knowledge written in my poems comes from a life time of experience not hearsay or out of books . Having four children and two step children and also numerous grand children . I have always been a good listener and eyes in the back of my head .
ABUSERS , WHY DO WE THINK SO LITTLE OF OUR CHILDREN ,THEY ARE ABUSED EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY,WHY DO WE BURY OUR HEADS IN THE SAND ,WHEN OUR CHILDREN ARE ABUSED YES BETRAYED ,AND WHY IS IT THE NORM , TO THINK IF IN CARE THEY ARE LESS NEEDY OF THE LOVE THAT OTHERS CAN SHARE ,AND WHO IS IT DECIDES THAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO BETRAY CHILDREN'S RIGHTS TO BE CHILDREN .
