    • The poem I wrote speaks of the traits I inherited from my Dad, and is about how I don’t want to inherit his Alzheimers. This is very true, and it is a bit of a fear for me, to end up with no memories of the ones I love, and unable to care for myself, or have any real knowledge of anything much at all, really.


  1. I don’t know if there’s a place for the poem I’ve written, it feels like it may be more therapy for self,rather that something for other people. I have other ideas on approaching the subject differently, perhaps make it less ‘my story’, and somewhat lighter.


  2. that gets tricky, Carolyn when a poem appears to be in that area. perhaps it’s time to put it away for a while and come back to it a month or so later. Or to disguise it. My most published poem ‘Shame’ is about something very, very personal but it has been successfully concealed behind a metaphor. I may post it later so you can have a look
