Our Escape
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Whenever we felt no one cared.
You would come home, your experiences you would share.

Your way of life and freedom gave us hope
that better things were yet to come.

Was told I was uncontrolable,
you were there as my consoler.

You never knew but you were our saviour. A life saver.
Didn't care what I did to some, but you I didn't want to hurt.

Your visits took the pressure off
made us feel important and you we could trust.
