All lives matter

Not much changed for me during lockdown days

sit down and I’ll explain, removing any haze

Business and home life were normal to me

l will tell you what I think if you will listen to me
I live alone so that bits fine

I’m also a key worker so I didn’t have much time

to feel bored, stuck at home and missing any fun

And I managed to cope when my weekends begun
Supermarket shopping was the hardest bit of all

People were just rushing past, like a kind of free for all

especially in the beginning when the toilet rolls were none

how we gonna cope with this, how can we carry on.

Yet we all got to here

I’m glad it’s moving on

Although we are not through it and this war is not yet won.

Spare 2 minutes silence for all the fallen and the lost

Counting numbers doesn’t show who’s counting the real cost

things have changed, it’s a new normal now and

the past has been and gone

we have to adapt we survived it this far

don’t get complacent or relax to be too spa.

we have to be smart so we don’t let a second wave

take too many lives when those lives can be saved.

Every life matters, oh why can’t you see

it’s not this or that, LGBT or BAME

The stronger abusing weaker ones it is quite simple see

wars and all abuses proven it time and time again throughout our history.

I agree it’s a race issue there is no doubt about that

The human race has never failed to be its own outcast

So take that chip off your shoulder, stand tall and be proud of who you are

If it wasn’t for the ones before, we wouldn’t have got this far.

The simple truth is we all get hurt and we all feel pain

Every life matters, must I say it all again?

About God’s Girl1

Hello I write about what I know and I just try to let the words flow from my heart and soul. I have one of those minds that never switches off and because my poems are pretty simple I find the process very therapeutic and releasing for my mind too.

    Lives caught in the busy framework of daily routine , social network , prejudiced LGBT,, …. …held together in the cluttered landscape of personal life or daily routine.
