No peace

I have no peace while you walk free

No resolution – nor retribution – for what you took from me

You write you are sorry for what you failed to do

Easy words disguise your lack of humanity, of human kindness

For those in your charge, so vulnerable and frightened

You have been set free, retrained, deemed fit to work

Lucky you

Where is the justice that allows this to happen?

Where is the justice when there is no law

To punish you for what you failed to do?

Where is the justice that allows you to walk freely

Where is my justice for what you took from me?

I have no peace while you walk free

Screwed

You come to me with your friendship

Stretched out in front on a plate

Well I nearly fell for it

But it’s way too little too late

 

Have you no idea, no respect for how I feel

Of all that you have taken?

Left with nothing – not knowing what to do

Because you are selfish? Greedy? No way of fighting

For what is right and true?

 

Yes, you are weak – well my ‘friend’ I am strong

I do not want your crumbs of self pity and destruction

I will find my own way but will stay true

To everything I value…

Yet with some ambiguity

That also includes you

 

Yes I am strong, but I also have a heart

So my fair-weather friend,

 

The anger will subside but will forgiveness come?

Can we mend the weakness that has driven us apart?

 

Tomorrow

Today I am done, I am beaten, weary from the fight

Alone, isolated, ostracised for not yielding

But the fight lies dormant, waiting for strength

I have but a few hours to search deep within;

To rest, recover, before facing the enemy

Who overnight turned from friend to foe

 

Deep within I know it is there

The strength, the power to battle on

My memory of you makes me fight for fairness

The legacy you left me from the moment I was born

I will try not to disappoint you, to waiver from my mission

To stand up for fairness and stay true to me within

 

Wish me luck dad x

DONE!

Backed into a corner, no way to fight

No way forward and no way out

Isolated, alone – no support in my plight

 

Something I’ve loved, taken just like that

No warning, no compassion, no regard

 

Bereavement comes in many guises

But this I didn’t foresee

The disregard for all I’ve done

For me, my loyalty
