in the eyes of mothers and children
destined to suffer
because of the place of their birth.
My soul aches – for the pain and anguish
of their daily lives
spent in squalor
in far away lands, thrive.
My soul hurts – for the many children
black-skinned and sullen eyed,
whose mothers must
sacrifice their own pride
in order to provide.
My soul bleeds – with incomprehension
at their integrity and inner strength,
that only we see
for they are unfortunates
who know no better world
while we live with our luxuries
and pathetic struggles.
My soul screams – at the injustice,
these people must endure
in order to survive
short, troubled lives
My soul grieves – for these people
whose struggles we will never comprehend
because we are
- the fortunates."
Since writing this post I have become the victim of nastiness on Twitter. I have discovered that both YourPollyanna and TheCheekyMissB have been accusing me of bullying them. They have even brought my daughter into the equation although she rarely goes on Twitter and has never spoken to them or about them before. There behaviour has been deplorable and potentially damaging to both myself and my daughter. Once I had unfollowed the pair, I had never mentioned their names again in a derogatory way on Twitter and expected the same respect from them. Sadly this has not been the case and now the situation has got completely out of hand because a certain bluejag has taken it on himself to join forces with them, despite the fact that he has always pledged loyalty to me in the past, especially when he has (frequently) fallen out with other tweeters and I have backed him up believing him to be a genuinely caring man. The reason why I believe him to be behind the nasty remarks he has made on my blog posts and some of my websites is because of the viciousness and terminology he uses. Since our little spat on Twitter, when he verbally attacked me for "butting in" on one of his conversations, he has systematically accused me of being a vindictive bully with "no life". Friends of his have jumped on the band wagon and also spouted nastiness at both myself and my daughter.
The final straw for me was when I saw what he had written on my blog. He has absolutely no integrity and respect for anyone and deserves to be named and shamed.

Now see what @bluejag writes about me on Twitter 24hrs after blocking me:
"I'm great - just find it sad that certain people have bullied on here and then whined to my followers that I have been nasty2 them"
"The best way to deal with bullies with low self esteem and sad lives is to ignore them. Don't let ANY inadequate upset you on twitter."
"Oh honey water off a ducks back to me but two of my female friends have been bullied by a saddo"
"When you come on twitter it is bittersweet. You find amazing friends but you also see the sad no life vindictive side of people. Very sad"
"Always love it when people behave like vindictive bullies on twitter and then go whining to their followers that they have been wronged".
"@TheCheekyMissB Haaaa! Yes they have enough shit to put up with! Best to just laugh at saddos like that. They just lead bitter lives. X"
"@TheCheekyMissB There's a few people off here I'd like to send to Japan! x"
"@YourPollyanna @TheCheekyMissB @Melanie_Cooper @syjohngibbons Polly don't have a break from twitter if you do then that bitch has won. Xx"
and this from a man who professes to hating bullies?! No wonder he hides his face!
