In all of this time

Stephen Chinnock

14 May 2020

In all of this time
Since the terrible fires
Of New Year’s Eve
That took away my home
All of my precious memories
I’ve not shed a tear

It was a state of shock
Leaving me struggling
To set up a new life
Which has been done
Settled into mollymook
With a wonderful house mate

A new garden being established
Purchases of a couple of beautiful objects
To brighten my heart

But today my tears finally came
Now there’s a waterfall.
Of tears pouring down on the iPad
Letting it all go
The pain and hurt stored up
Released at last!

So I’ll sit here now
With a bottle of whiskey
And cry my heart out
Cleansing my soul
And I’ll probably talk
To my monk on the mountain!
