Friendship

~

Some friendships come,

Some friendships go,

It’s a part of life,

She’s coming to know.

~

As she tries so hard to tell me,

As she tries so hard to say,

I make out that her friend was

Not at pre-school again today.

~

I hold her close to my heart,

I give her a big, firm cuddle,

Stroke her hair, hold back my tears,

Our little bear’s in a muddle.

~

She thinks her friend’s deserted her,

Not one friend but two,

My instinct tells me that

She thinks I will now too.

~

I can offer her little reassurance as

Her sobs subside from exhaustion,

I see her tear-stained face

And in her eyes I see her heart broken.

~

The circles of friendship are a wonderful thing,

The trust, joy, love, loyalty that they bring,

But our little bear is tired and confused

Her little heart has been trampled on and utterly bruised.

~

By Carol Cameleon

Written when our little bear was at pre-school.  Now at school, her mind is a little more mature but the potential for confusion is certainly still there…

Do you read, listen or ‘see’? ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

#WonderfulWorldofWriting news writing poem blog

And here is the news…

~

Do you read the news

For worldwide views?

Or do you choose to

Follow simply to amuse?

~

Do you read it?

Do you listen?

Or do you ‘see’?

Or do you tend to ignore it, just like me?!

~

Do you follow world news to see who’s boss?

Or celeb TV for the latest goss?

Both versions of ‘news’ make me a bit cross,

They smooth over the rough giving us the ‘gloss’…

~

News paints a picture for me and you,

Covering imperfections, but is it true?

With the ‘touching up’ it should be clear

But instead we’re given political smear…

~

It’s called editing, spinning,

It’s very cleverly used,

But before we know it,

Boy, are we confused?

~

But use your own free will,

Make your own mind up though,

Hear both sides or better still,

Just go with the flow…
