ask yourself

what thing

not a penny to her name
the only two things she owns
strapped tight in the stroller
& skipping beside her

instead of gossiping
on how she could
ask yourself
why she had to

This poem is an extract from my forthcoming poetry book 'Nothing Here Needs Fixing'


  1. absolutely beautiful, thought and action provoking..
