Poem written in April 2012
“The Earth is shattering around me.
A confidence once so well portrayed has disappeared.
The loss of sensation.
The will to not care
And to shut out the world that turns around you
Do they know how it feels
To feel so small in the forest of big oaks
Reassurance does not come easy
The daffodil in the woods has dwindled
Never to bloom again.”
