Adversity

I’ve overcome a lot of adversity in my life. I was born 13 weeks premature. I wasnt meant to survive, I’m glad I did.
Then I was abused for many, many years. 12 years while in bording school in dublin. A school for the blind no less.
I was diagnosed with mental illness as a teen, which was very challenging.
I came home from dublin, and went to school at home, in a school for sighted people, that had over 500 pupils, I was the only blind child in the school.
Again, another challenging time, but I got through it.
I feel like I’ve had a roller coaster of a life, with many ups and downs, and many challenges, but I made it, I am still here, still breathinG.

  1. Well done Carol, you’ve cleared a lot o fences….!!

    This Fence

    I am quickly nearing this fence.
    An obstacle of a lifetime I see.
    And from my side of this fence,
    The hurdle is too high for me.
    And on the other side of this fence,
    There seems nowhere to land or flee.

    I have arrived at this fence,
    Above the pickets, just grey sky.
    And on my side of this fence,
    The grass is brown and dry.
    On the other side of this fence,
    The grass is green, but still I cry.
    How am I to clear this fence,
    There seems nowhere to go or get by.

    This fence, all built of stones,
    Breaks my spirit, and all my bones.
