Child’s Play

Child’s Play

“Stop or I’ll shoot.”

Maria froze.

“Turn around slowly.”

The voice was small, demanding, straight to the point. Turning around Maria gasped, before slamming a trembling hand over her mouth.

Of course she’d seen it before, many times, when her father was cleaning it, but she’d never had it pointed at her before, never come so close to it, until now.

Tommy was just a child, 8 years old, Maria’s kid brother.

“Tommy put that down, we’re not supposed to touch that.”

“You’re not the boss of me….”

Maria reached out to take the gun…a single gunshot took her life.

In the US in 2015, more people were shot and killed by toddlers than by terrorists. In 2013, the New York Times reported on children shot by other children: “Children shot accidentally – usually by other children – are collateral casualties of the accessibility of guns in America, their deaths all the more devastating for being eminently preventable.”  https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/mar/13/the-macabre-truth-of-gun-control-in-the-us-is-that-toddlers-kill-more-people-than-terrorists-do

Anonymous . . . The Eulogy Of.

Standard

anymous

Dedicated to all those voices who spoke out over the centuries, in so many ways, about so many things, but whose names on the whole remain anonymous to us even now (mainly because so many of them were women), yet whose words we often quote time and again, using their most famous signature Anonymous, Anon, Unknown.

Anonymous . . . The Eulogy Of.

All I had to say of time my dear, that was No friend of mine,

From first breath of air, till final gasp, my life felt at odds with one divine.

And from cowering in corners, to dancing on life’s stage,

From sharing the thoughts my heart did think, it seems my life caused much outrage.

From mother’s arms, to father’s knee I sensed no loss of Love,

From the first song I sang, to last climbed tree, life was always knife in velvet glove.

And although I pondered tried my best, to embrace the thoughts from east to West,

It was deemed and thus agreed upon, that I’d failed every single test.

And so awash, set free, named useless, I picked up my pen and did duly write,

My thoughts, my contemplations, my discernments, wrong or right.

For although it seemed there was No place in this great life for me,

The pen in hand dared to imply, to write was my destiny.

And so after much discussion the pen and I declared…

Here are the words we could not say while life left speech impaired.

And you may choose to look not see, to listen but not hear,

You may dismiss my cause, concerns, the things I deeply fear.

But you can never say again, there goes that waste of life,

For this fool she leaves gifts of words to you. . . Because that is her life’s purpose, her Sacrifice.

The Long and Weary Road

Though the road is long and weary

And the way far out of reach,

So much uncertainty, so much peril

So much to learn, yet what to teach…

For want of a thought

For want of a thought

Posed my questions, spoke not in haste…

A Time For Pain…

If I had a magic pen and I could write away all of your pain with it today I would have a really difficult decision before me, because as much as I wouldn’t want to see you in pain and do nothing to ease or to help it, I truly believe that in each and every one of our lives there is a reason for pain, there is ‘A Time for Pain’. . .

#IAm … A Work in Progress…

When I was a child I thought I knew everything, I thought that I had all the answers, that I had sussed out life’s mysteries, its meaning. I thought I’d discovered everything there was to discover, and I couldn’t understand for the life of me why I needed to go to school? What could school possibly teach me that I didn’t know already?…
