‘Sonnet: to care’ by Seona Ashton

August 24, 2014

Sonnet: to care

When bringing up a child

we all intend to do our very best

to find our own unique way

through the trials and tears

to send our child off to live their life

now fully grown


I do this work because ?

I want to make a difference to the lives of others,

To shift from shame,

move away from mistakes,

Build back the confidence due

to Fathers and Mothers


Hope is the currency I use,

the way I move and motivate,

inspire the change which leads away from fear

into a say about how to extend

and grow the range of options,

give more realistic choice.


The future speaks and exercises voice.
