A poem submitted by Veronica Rice – Faithful Friend.


A protection from the world

A safe haven I enjoy

For the emptiness inside

My soul calls out for freedom

A sweet, kind and gentle release

From the inescapable pain inside

Which everyday increase

Humid thick and muggy

The cruel air I breathe

Bitterness and hatred

A cunning duo indeed

Reject everyone through any means

For this bubble is my home

Protect me faithful friend

And never leave me alone
