Young girl crying. Thursday July 17, 2014
All too often we may find ourselves feeling lonely and all alone - or we view or feel through a song or film, something that stirs something in us.
Many of us know that feeling and being trapped in it - even although we are desperate to find some connection and communication through a social interaction.
Many of the blogs written help us feel connected, or as Trisha stated in her comments last week - she no longer 'felt alone' and it enabled her to 'feel'.
As I had recovered enough to come home last week to the house my children grew up in, next to their village primary school, needless to say I was struggling after staying with wonderful friends.
I managed to go out of the door a few times into the garden but not actually out of the gate, which adjoins the primary school, until I heard deep sobbing.
It was a 10 year old, sitting alone in a concealed corner sobbing her heart out.
It reminded me of my daughter, who I have not seen in 6 years since my wife left, but first my heart went out to this poor child and I walked over to see if I could console her.
When I came back in I sat down and and wrote a poem. I rarely change words, they simply flow intuitively.
Can you 'feel' her? Where does it take you if you sit with your feelings at the end of it?
