 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.


2022...hows it been for you?

For me…

one problem after another

never time to recover

no momentum to carry me forward.

Stagnating in my mind

no good thoughts to cleanse the bad

murderous wars

gone is the world we once had

and we are helpless to change

madmen and their weapons..

haunt us

scare us

belittle us…

condemn us all to cannon fodder

men, children...mothers.

2022.. the year humanity started to crumble

the year more children were orphaned

as they were pulled from the rubble….

People playing politics always brings


Yet the powerful remain powerful

surely there are far more of us than them so why do they always get their way?

When do we, Humanity get to have our say?
