Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

A Poem by Gee
"

A take on a single mums plight

"
Four different fathers
a monochrome brood
drinking for comfort
and f*****g for food.
Best before blow jobs
use before shags
payment in polythene
half empty bags.
Laying and lying
but only to self
shop soiled, outdated,
left on the shelf

What people do sometimes looking for a place to feel loved and belong- sadness as it’s self destruction but each has a path to walk- pray people learn to love themselves no matter where they come from- very direct and full of passion and truth- great words- make people think🌹

Wow. Hard, direct and powerful words. Some people devalued their self and become invisible and forgotten. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing words and thoughts.

I saw the photos. I hate the cold too.
That is the reality for many. The circle closes at a very early age and for those trapped inside, there is rarely a way out.

It is to the shame of the politicos and the useless hand wringers and jobsworths, that they turn their collective backs away from the problem.
No! Actually it's not that simple is it. They know, oh how well they know; but collateral damage is just that and viewed from the Ivory towers of the establishment, perfectly acceptable.

I'm actually a single mum; but fortunately for me the circle never closed.

Beccy.

Eating is a hell of a habit to break... we survive as we must and just sometimes share fingertips softly holding a hand that understands what a hug can mean.
