“It’s not a cry you can hear at night”…

He needs your help…

And he needs you here…

Let him feel you…

Let him know you are near…

Embrace him with your very soul…

Let light into his darkened hole…

Until he once again can be…

Justified in all that he can see…

And he’s down before you on bended knee…

Hoping you’ll hear his weary plea…

“If your asking me, I say no surrender”…

He lives in a world…
Of his own creation…
So brave and so fearless…
And without hesitation…
Walking tall and proud…
Just embracing life…
Growing stronger each day…
Never thinking twice…
Viewing everything…
Through different eyes…
Young, pure and innocent…
Not tainted by lies…
Living in a bubble…
Of total protection…
Each day an education…
And full of reflection…
Where the stresses and strains…
Of this cruel Earth…
Have remained out of sight…
Since his day of birth…

He never ever worries…
About what is to come…
Living life in the moment…
Basking in the warm sun…
Whilst laughing and joking…
Ignoring all the rules…
But knowing right from wrong…
And not suffering fools…
Never surrendering…
To any negative thoughts…
Or seeing the bigger picture…
Of what lies before…
The mistakes he will make…
When following the crowd…
And when circumstances…
Don’t make him proud…
But he will live his life…
And do it his own way…
Filling me with pride…
Each and every day…

“My wish is for you, an end to your sorrow”…

A beautiful tribute…
To such a terrible day…
When it all fell apart…
In the most dramatic way…
The actions of others…
Cost such a high price…
Did they ever think about it…
Or even blink twice…
About their mission…
Of suicide and murder…
Leaving the world stunned…
As the city screamed, we heard her…
Watching as it unfolded…
Hearts and minds confused…
Was this really happening…
This heart breaking news…
Reality was ripped apart…
Seeing terror on their faces…
And the gravity sunk in…
As a cloud of dust replaces…
The double tower skyline…
And a city under fire…
Where heroes were forged…
Out of pride and of desire…
To help the stranded victims…
Those poor innocent souls…
Wrong place, wrong time…
Creating lasting holes…
In families and communities…
Wounds that will never heal…
The collateral damage…
Of the perpetrator’s deal…
We will never forget them…
But as time moves on…
The city started to rebuild…
Showing terrorism is wrong…
Whilst remembering their lost…
Honouring those who died…
Each individual that was taken…
With such poignant pride…

So, in the midst of a busy week that has thrown up more questions than answers on a personal matter, this blog was nominated for an award. Nominated twice actually, which really made me smile and was quite humbling.

It is not the first time; you may remember that previously, the lovely Nina from http://wordsthatflowlikewater.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/inspiring-the-very-inspiring-blogger-award/  Nominated this blog for the “Very Inspiring Blog” award – which was really nice of her.

very-inspiring-blogger-award

This achievement has now been followed up by both Richard from http://richardankerswrites.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/the-versatile-blogger-award/ and Christine from http://crissyb315.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/the-versatile-blogger-award/ nominating this blog for the “Versatile blogger award”.  Which again, is really nice and I am truly humbled.

Both these awards come with things that need to be done and I have to admit, I am pretty poor at these – however, the fact that these awards come from wordpress peers does mean a lot and whilst I have little of interest about myself to do any sort of list, I do feel the need to spread the word of others blogs.

The below are 10 blogs that I read and follow – and I would encourage you to try them out for size – these are just a snapshot as I follow a huge amount – so if your blog isn’t below, it is not reflection on you – more an opportunity.

Please leave a comment and let people know where they can find you – this could be an opportunity for all of us to build up our wordpress base? Not sure if this will even work, but don’t be shy – we all want to be read – even if we do not think what we produce is worth reading!

So, here is a snapshot in addition to the 3 above and in no order:

So, a song to leave this ramble – I watched an Eagles documentary last night and really enjoyed it, so have a few tunes floating round in my head – this one is a message for the weekend – “Take it easy” – no more words needed – well, unless you wish to comment!

Enjoy
