You can do it! Think about you!

Good morning and welcome to my life.

A mother, nana and wife

I am also doggy mummy to two staffie bitches.

Oh well so what life comes with little hitches


Now what should I do today?

Apart from my usual things, tidy, wash cook and clean,

They’re all such mundane little things.

Sit and have a fag it gives me time to think.


 ‘’Oh! I know what I’ll do, I’ll have a little drink.’’


It’s so relaxing; I’ll have a little fun,

I’ll put the music on and dance around the room.

This is so exciting but I need a little rest.

‘‘What can I do know’’ I say?

I simply need to think.


‘’Oh! I know what I’ll do, I’ll have a little drink.’’


I sit down and I ponder my life’s ups and down,

Why has all this happened in such a short space of time?

Once you were living in a space called cloud 9.

Why have our lives been ripped apart?


Pick up the pieces?

I don’t know where to start.

Pick up the pieces and be strong!

But inside my heart is breaking,


I don’t know if I can carry on.

So what do you do?

Oh yes! You have to think

And what makes it easy?


‘’I’ll have another drink’’


People who care friends, neighbours and family don’t know how to help.

Everyone who loves you, you’ve turned away their help,

You can manage who you are in your stupid selfish way.
