Rebuild a Better Home

Forget yesterday’s unopened letters

Roll-up the sleeves of our winter sweaters

Clean-up the planets dirty carburetors

And reassemble last years scattered leggos better

Vaccinate our vulnerable from unknown carriers

And protect our hardworking warriors

Beware of societies unforgiving enemies

And expand your personal boundaries

It’s time to become a world community

And fight for the future of humanity

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. I do not have the answers Ingrid… but throughout history, the peoples voice grows stronger and stronger, and those in power eventually have listen to the multitude… and the puppet strings are severed…

  2. Yes! Exactly! Right on, Ivor!
    You said it…fight for the future of humanity. We are all human beings…no matter what our differences…and the things we have in common are greater and we must unite under those things.
    This is a powerful, vivid word-pic, emotion driven poem!!!
    PS…I love Aron Wright! His voice always wraps me up in a safe warm blanket. 🙂
