my older brother was always a bother to me, we were like chalk and cheese. He was always very worried about everything with anxiety and fussed over things, we never really got on. But our family were close knit mum, dad, Alan and I regardless of this. And were close to all our aunties and uncles and cousins in our family.

i got married and had a family and he stayed at home til he was in his forties and it was a bother for me to leave home but my parents encouraged him to do so so that they could have some peaceful life.

He had a horrible disease when he was in his 20s which affected his blood and he nearly died. He was in the London Hospital for a long time and eventually came back to Southend Hospital where he recovered. He was never the same and found it hard to get a job and did get a job with the local Government Office, where he was bullied. Thats not surprising as i worked for the Government and the staff were very strict and not pleasant on some accounts.

He looked after my parents in their old age. My dad didnt want us to see him and my mum in their detioration. My dad wanted us to remember him as he was when we knew him and the fun grandad he was with my children.

Now i live in Shrewsbury near Chrissy my daughter and her husband and left him there on his own, i must go back and live with him . My vision had been eaten with glaucoma which is most unfair and we are in a panamdemic too. What a World! What a life, we never would have dreamed this would happen.

please let me keep this vision i have so i can have a semblance of a life for the future i still have a lot of life to give.

thank you

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
