Who Matters?


You matter.
Your feelings matter. They can not be measured with a tape.
Your voice matters, and it is beautiful.
Your soul matters. You can never know its silent shape.

We matter.
We are lonely rocks in a never ending sea.
Our hearts are lost, are found, are free, are full,
We are trees torn away in storms, and washed up in the lee.

We are lost.
Our hopes lift up, then plunge against the rocky shore.
Our systems serve ‘The People Who Matter’, they rule.
‘The People Who Matter’ really matter. They just do not matter more.

Our lives, and our hopes, untended, tired and parching,
Let’s find our feet and fill our hearts and hand in hand start marching.

In 2017, I set myself a goal that 'I would love to become a writer, to use my creativity, and be able to move and inspire people'. I expect this to be a long journey, but it is one I am excited to have started on. I hope that by being able to share my writing as I develop, people will be able to enjoy it, and I will be able to learn from constructive feedback whether positive or critical. I am grateful for the study I have been able to do with the Open University in the Arts and Languages, and that has given me a good foundation to set out on this course. I am a dad, a husband, and pass my 9 to 5 as an IT Solutions Specialist.
