The World Doesn't Sparkle

The world doesn’t  sparkle
But we do
With each passing tragedy
Our love shows through
Although they maybe millions of miles away
Or close by
We give them a tender smile
Or message to get them through

The world doesn’t sparkle
But we do
Evil wants to  find a home
But we shine through

US firefighters shot dead in 'ambush' in New York state

David was born in Liverpool in 1964. He left school with nothing, rummaged around various dead end jobs, then back to college and uni. In his 20s he first discovered poetry, starting writing and performing and has done so ever since. I has lived on the Wirral for the past 8 years.
