Hop…step…skip…hop

Leap of faith toss the stone

Destiny falls on your path

Behold the wonder before you

Grasp the life given

Make the subtle changes needed

And ride the path as if you own it

You make life worth living

Take the supplies and people necessary

Challenge yourself and rise high

Your worth is insurmountable and priceless

Life is a game of hop scotch go win it

Yes it’s raining 

Liquid sunshine from above

The mountain peaks are shrouded Gray

There are rivers in streets 

Water at play
Waterproof clothing sturdy boots

Appropriate items packed and secure

Off we set one foot afore the other

Many gems to discover

Issolated tarns skree shelved slopes

Wildlife sheltering close
Herdie sheep huddle close 

Tourist scuttle too and grow

Shops are buzzing country clear

Out in the open is where I’ll be

Freedom from drudgery day to day strain

Lungs full of clean air wind in my hair
This is the life

Peace and serendipity 

We have choices to lead or follow

Break with the norm and explore your region

This cumbrian life is my salvation

Many of my first blogs were about my life and struggles with bullies and miss conceptions. The processes and journeys made by myself and surgery awell as the determination to succeed.

This is an update if you like….. my operations from 35 years ago have decided to collapse.Yeah you have read right !!!, my face from forehead to jaw line has been built on a wire mesh (chicken wire) like stuff. And for reasons best known too others it has collapsed and twisted.

 My nose has dropped around 4 inches , eye socket has shifted and high cheek bone around socket flattened out. I now have a ridge in my palate on the roof of my mouth and the entire physiology of my skull has been affected. The shifting of the above has worsened my Fybro Myralga symptoms and created others as well.

I am presently under Maxi Facial clinic in Newcastle 9+ months and no further forward. No medical records have been obtained and it’s taken 8+ months for photos to be taken. The consultant in charge doesn’t seem to have a clue what too do. And is not following the NHS’s own process or procedures properly.

I am very aware that the type of surgery I have had and that I require is very specialised and dare I say it rare.But there are processes and procedures to be followed and we would be a lot further followed. I know this because I am a qualified nurse as well as 40 years experience of my condition and surgeries.

Because of this I am having to apply for a Personal independence Plan (pip) which is a government based benefit for disabilities. Now you can’t see the damage or symptoms mostly internal and physical . So some in aware specialist without appropriate will have to decide my fate.

I was a very popular and busy personal trainer but die to this issue a)It’s not safe to be lifting weights and taking classes (b) the symptoms are causing severe issues  (c) pain and discomfort as well as anxiety and distress. All of which put working,Walking and social activities on a back burner.

I write this not for sympathy but awareness for others, I know I will get there and be bk too 100% soon enough. But there are people out there that are not able too see past there difficulties as easily. Please please please stay strong and be yourself at all times. These things are sent too test us and not define us. I am a proud father of 4 , ex  Scots  Guard,Nurse,Coach and Personal trainer.I write poetry and stories , trying to inspire others along the way as well as bring my children up the best way possible. I am not my face or condition I just sometimes have too stop and take a rest then go again when able.

We the Warriors will win the battles wars are events to over come by adapting they can and will be conquered.

Striking lighting like

Intensifying every twinge 

Sending the sensors into overdrive

Clouding the judgement always
Bolt upright I sit

Corpse like and still

Eyes red and bleary

Darkness consumes my form
Ground hog day starts once more

As my mask fitted

Smiling ,happy and fresh

I tackle the tasks before me
Dulled by medicated chemical’s

Cruising along with programmed tasks

Personality void,robotic motion

Plowing through the day
Homeward to solitude

Mask drops partialy once more

Top up of chemicals

Replenishment of energy

Returning to my easy bed

And the chatter of the pixelated noise box

Advancing
From the valley
Enriched and alive
We stronger than ever arise
Greater than before
Ritchie because of darkness
Elevated to higher ground
Always looking and listening
Tantalising society
Manafesting or future
Envocing emotional ploys
Never decending back too darkness

We are but a spec
Small undescript grain of sand
Blown by the winds of change
Tumbling along with the masses
Tightly packaged and ensnared
Bursting with life but never freed
This is our lot without choice
Dunes amassed with time
Shifted by social winds
We the grains that build the dunes
As society wains under pressures of state
We are but a grain of sand

Spherical island
Mostly water meeting the sky
Continental islands dotted around
Molten core 0rotected by tetonic plates
Centuries of historical info buried thier
The planet you reside on MOTHER EARTH
Giver of life sustenance and wealth
Non material possessions true natural worth
Deformed and scarred by humanities want
Directions changed and buauty destroyed
Physically wanting to re write the book
Sending the fire,tremors and more
Waking of man too his pearlious ways
Forcing renewal and fiscal change
I am a power to be beholden and served
No truer being then nature itself
So step safe and sure follow the path
To constant migration on satalite earth
You are it’s keepers of antiquities old
It’s Animals,fauna and Oceans great
Stop the distruction and change your ways
There is no other dwelling that carries my name
I am home Earth large and yours

Flow

Tumble and dash

Cascading with a splash

Pebbles and rocks

Crash and rumble

Ebb and flow

Sea word flow

Salmon and trout

Play about

Sheltered by trees

On way to the sea

Gurgle and murmur

Crashing like thunder

Escaping land

With freedoms sigh

Seaward glances wave goodbye

Placed upon earth
Striving for survival
Soaking up knowledge
From all that surrounds
Eyes wide open
Ears pinned back
Eternally questioning
Those on the path

We huddle together
For safety and warmth
To banish the darkness
For protection of worth
Forward we stride
Indavidualism our sheild
Against social awareness
And the horrors it weilds

From singleton to partner
We seamlessly pass
Hero and protector
To siblings amassed
New role and stresses
Passed in our wake
Headlong and onward
With confidant aire

We are but foils
Parting the air
So others may follow
And learn on the way
It’s not for us to be forceful
Or drag them our way
Just guide and enlighten
This who would dare

Born unaware
Of our place on this earth
Kept busy just living
Battling for worth
With hard work and laughter
We find true placement for one
And social acceptance
We take our turn

Enevitability takes us by the hand
Guides us with comfort
As time does pass
Everyone safe under our charge
Prepared in the knowledge
It’s our time to pass
They take on the journey
Upon us too walk
As one with the earth
And the universes birth
We watch them and smile
From positions on high
This is our journey
The reasoning why

Only a concept
Born by desire
Shooting through life
Flying higher and higher
Acheiving goals laying waste to challenges
The burning desire
To grow so bold
From the fire we cascade
Burning embers full of life
Energised and ready to go
Watch out world here we go
