Falling Down, a poem by member Keith Whigham


Fell down and had a nasty knock.

A life changing event for myself and my flock.

Life would never be the same for us all.

Life was so different before the fall.

Inside my head I still think the same.

Now communicating is hard work, a real pain.

Got lots of support and understanding all the way.


Dear family and friends assist me every day.

Other people are impacted by my nasty fall.

We are all coping with life’s new challenge.

Not looking at what might have been but what our future is.
