        Ive never written a poem before……so here goes!

        Life before

        I hear the little motorbike

        Coming down the street

        The tightness in my chest

        My heart skipping a beat

        My ears strain hard, to hear the sound

        Will it or wont it stop

        I take a breath and hold it

        My stomach in a knot

        It happens every day you see

        The waiting game begins

        And when i hear that squeaky brake

        My mind begins to spin

        The postman is the person

        That i used to fear the most

        The bills and debt collectors

        Who would contact me by post

        I would never leave the house

        Until i knew that he’d gone by

        Or run out to the letter box

        To ensure the mail was mine

        I could never run the risk

        Of someone else beating me there

        I knew that if i did

        My secret would be laid bare

        Today i feel a little different

        As i know there’ll be no more

        I have taken back my life

        And left behind my life before
