LOST LITTLE CHILDREN
Many children in the UK are living in poverty, homeless and going without food, many children are also full time carers. Published for the first time, my latest poem penned for a Christmas awareness message. XX

A lost little girl
Always on her own,
Her mummy’s ill in bed
Her loose button must be sewn,
Alone in the playground
No one understands,
She rubs her tired eyes
Drops her head into her hands,

This lost little girl
Exhausted every day,
She hasn’t any friends
As after school she cannot play,
Alone in the playground
Why isn’t life fair?
Once her school-day’s over
Her mummy needs her there,

A lost little boy
Yawns in the class,
His tummy often rumbles
His maths test he will not pass,
Distracted by his hunger
His parents try their best,
Dependant on a foodbank
Their home is repossessed,

This lost little boy
Skinny and pale,
Chews on his pencil
Almost certain he will fail,
Distracted by his hunger
Why isn’t life fair?
He finds it hard to focus
With his parents in despair,

Lost little children
Touched by circumstance,
Vulnerable children
Their future needs a chance,
Alone and distracted
Governed by their fate,
Many live in poverty
No food on their plate,

Lost little children
In desperate situations,
Disadvantaged children
With no future aspirations,
Alone and distracted
Sometimes without care,
But these are little children
Why shouldn’t life be fair?

Having come across my story through the BBC News documentary in January this year, I am delighted to be invited onto Salford Student's Radio Station Utter Radio''s show - Fashion Fixers. Moved by my story, the producers who have already interviewed Dr Carolyn Main of Psychology Fashion, Alexa Chung and Lucy Hart felt their audience should hear about the detrimental impact of a shopping addiction. Speaking to the younger generation about mental health, addiction and lifestyle is incredibly important to me, so I see this as a great opportunity to reach out to them. Thank you to Lizzie Halliwell for getting in touch with me and making it possible. More details in the next few days! XX ... See MoreSee Less
