1. Rhyming poetry to change your day

I’m your daddy

I’ve had the text from your mum

In two hours ends the fun

I’m doing the washing up

Thinking surely too much

Starting to regret and punish myself

I imagine it’s not good for my health

You’ve been with us for twelve days

You’re going through a phase

It seems you’ve been punishing us

Fits, tantrums, sulks and stuff

Whatever your six year old mind can find

What are you going to do this time?

It’s been so difficult looking after you

Not always knowing what to do.

With the baby here it’s been a big change

For you it has to be a little bit strange

We talk to you often, try to explain

You rolling your eyes, us explaining in vein

I want us to get along, all together

But you change your mind just like the weather

I ask myself what can I do?

What is needed to help you?

Although it’s difficult and you can make me sad.

I’ll always love you cause I’ll always be your dad

Childhood · depression · New work

That’s a big mistake

That boy at school

Life already so hard

He teases me

Every day a new start

.

I never asked for this

To have him in my class

He always bullies me

Such an ass

.

He laughs with his friends

Just because he can

I don’t have any

No one understands

.

I work by myself

Always apart

I wear it on my sleeve

My fragile heart

.

Why do they have to be mean?

What did I ever do?

Am I so different from them?

Why do they exclude?

.

Days and days

This torment goes on

Nothing changes

The same repeating song

.

I can’t tell anyone

My mum doesn’t even care

I’m getting sick of it

I’m really scared

.

Being threatened now

Thumped in the chest

Shirt ripped down the side

I just want to rest

.

I am so fed up now

So I will bring an arm

I will wait for him

This time I will inflict harm

.

The last day of school

Before summer break

He decides to attack me

That’s a big mistake

Childhood · family · Life

Midnight, the bully stomper

There was once a young girl

Let’s call her midnight

She saw some nasty bullies

So she gave them a fright

Because when they were

Picking on a kid

Poor defenseless boy

Getting a fat lip

She said stop you scum

What do you think you’re doing

Pick on me

Try and put your shoe in

And this little midnight

Shy off 5 ft tall

She stopped the bullies

With her will, that’s all

Stand up for someone

If you can

If you can’t, tell someone

Make that your plan

Just because they’re different

What difference does it make

Help another human

It’s a piece of cake

Get better soon

Oh my little sweet

Get better soon

Hope you stop being sick

Shouldn’t happen to you

Papa is here

I will always be there

Let it all out

I’ll hold back your hair

So happy to see you sleeping

It’s been so hard on you

See you in the morning

Night night, I love you

Our little ones

Isn’t it funny

How we watch over

Our sweet little ones

To be sure they are ok

Wrapped around their fingers

We’d do anything

As they suffer

We can only wait

And watch

When there are spiders

And flies

Keeping them from sleep

We are there

Is it because they need us

Or we need to be needed

Love our children

Sometimes when we have had a really bad day

Its nice to get home, see your family and play

I like colouring with her, even though I’m colour blind

It doesn’t bother her, she really does not mind

Playing video games with my son, to see his joy

It makes me happy seing him smile, oh my boy

My favourite time at the moment is at night

Reading to my daughter, wonderful books, such a delight

It is the little things that help us through our days

We all have our methods, they are all the right ways

Love them as you can, give them a great big hug

Let them know your feelings, show them your love
