The Journey

Look ahead to see where you are going
Look behind to see where you came from
look inside to discover your purpose
Then let your life'sVoyage begin
take care as you sail to your future
Share kindness with people you meet
Take heart in the Oceans you conquer
till your journey through life is complete
And when your lifes journey s over
when your sun starts to shine in the sea
Pass on to the next generation the joy of what life can be ..

We are a Gang, a good Gang,
Not with guns that go bang
But with keyboards that tap
Tap tap. Filling in the Gap
In our world of unmet friends
On the net, our tapping sends
A Concerned message that lends
Sense of Community which bends
To embrace everyone,to be part
Of The Parky Gang. We got heart
And we watch out for each other
All the sisters and the brother
Like the parable of a lost sheep
We miss a voice and then we keep
An eye out, the search is deep
Until they show, then we sleep.
We laugh, joke, share feelings,
Recipes ("Beans on the ceilings"),
and our spare time with each other.
This gang of sisters and a brother
Is an extended family that cares
For each other and together bears
Lifes' troubles, joys and it dares
You to dream. Sweet! No Gang compares.

Good poem Lucy. How do you find time to write with little ones in the house.

And I haven't seen Patsy for awhile


Patsy has gone a missing:
Likely busy I am a guessing.
But maybe today
She will say Heh!
But maybe she went a fishing.

Time for some more posters Patsy!

Most of the poems I have sent in were about Parkinsons so I thought I would put in something different this time.

The Mill

Just over the bridge at the foot of the hill
Stood a crumbling and dusty and rundown old mill.
Some say it was haunted but I couldnt see
Whenever I passed it seemed allright to me.

One cold winters day I was going down the hill
I decided to check out this rundown old mill.
Feeling ever so brave I pushed open the door
There were all kinds of things laying around on the floor.

Come on said a voice you can help now your here
I just stood there trembling and shaking with fear.
Come on said a voice and give me a hand
After a while I obeyed his command.

A little while later my fears went away
And soon we discussed the events of the day.
He told me his news and I told him mine
Then I realised it was well after nine.

I'll be on my way I told the old man
But your welcome to come with me if you can.
I cant said the man it's here I must stay
I died in this mill ten years ago today.

Quickly I opened the door of the mill
I took to my heels and ran straight up that hill.
I ran into the house and jumped into my bed
I just couldnt believe that old man was dead.

I must have dozed off when I awoke it was bright
And all I could think off was that old man last night
Was it my imagination? or did i hear a voice say
Why dont you call in and see me today. affraid

Hi Everybody,

Aw Shucks, I'm glad you liked what I wrote. It was a negative, I'm not always that way. Next one should be lighter I think and more positive. Good work to you Em, and Everyone else.

This is me on a bad day folks..luckily i don't have too many of them..



PD at times can be a pain in the ass
The tremors, and stiffness go with it Alas!
At the checkout, trying to pack up my bag
Fumbling for money it’s all just a drag
If we’re lucky to find a helpful assistant
In my moment of need, it makes all the difference
Leave the shop, run for the bus, drops the shopping and with that I curse
Pd, Pd, why oh why. My eyes start to fill and so I cry.

Here's to tomorrow hoping it's bright
Life could be worse, stay strong and think fight.
For the demon that lives within my body you see.
I will not it let get the better of me.

Great idea Katie. I've been scrolling back through all the poetry and it really is good. Poets with PD will get my vote. Perhaps you could publish some of it on the wider internet. How about poetswithpd.com or pdpoets.com? Some could be published in the Parkinsons Magazine??
Anyone out there clever enough to set up a website? Just a thought........and by the way ems, your latest effort was very good. Glad to hear Sean is getting some exercise!!

To Jb and everyone your poetry i'll say
Puts me to shame that i will say..
At school i liked english, poetry and rhymes
Since then however i'm behind with the times..

I can only keep it short and sweet
My hand is shaky,with my achy feet..
Walked 2ks today yes me and Seán..
Not very far, for Seán far to long.

I'll sign off now before i bore ye to tears
listening to my ranting, oh you poor dears
Happy days to all on the PAI site
Take care, best wishes from em and nite,nite.

Jb, I think you should publish that poem. I showed it to my husband (hope you don't mind but I wanted his reaction as a man). He said your anger and frustration comes across loud and stark and rightly so, having such a dreadful thing happen in your prime. He was full of admiration for your being able to express your feelings so well through poetry. Very talented, so you are. Puts me to shame as I just can't get into the poetry thing but will have to think about it more as we have some other very talented poets in our midst.

Thanks jb x

And fish His uglynness from my soul
Leave me once again feeling whole.
Seperate my arm from his awful grip
Pull out the Demon with a mighty rip.

And I'll be catlike and bullish strong.
Like I sorta was, You are rude,wrong
Unpredictable, mean and self centred
My Body was happy before You entered

I don't feel like sharing my shell
With you no more, Can't you tell ?
That you cause me strain and stress
Like a bad renter, get another address

Leave my body graceful, loose and free
To Love, run and work and when I go pee
My body is ready for my bladder to drain
Not because you have screwed up my brain

How do you do it Jb? another great poem!

Jb don't scold us for being concerned,
We care about you and consider you our friend.
When you don't keep in contact, we worry and fret.
But then we're the female species, no better could you get.

Your wife need not worry, or think that we're strange.
Well, we are, but don't tell her! she'll think we're deranged!
We'll be on her side, no matter what happens,
Us girls stick together, no worries, no matter.

But we'll still care about you, because you're our friend,
We're in this together, right to the end!

The girls had thought I had gone away
But I am here, and here to stay.
I posted once and then some more
Should be busy and out the door.
But if the truth were to be told
If I want to live and grow old
I better sign out and draw the line
Soon it will be Wifes' quitting time.
What have you done?,how did your day pass?
She will soon figure out I sat on my ....


couch and spent time writing to you wonderful people.

Yikes look at the time, got to do chores, weed garden, feedhorses, stick beans on ceiling, see what's on the Telly. Maybe a beer would be nice...

I'm not really afraid of my dear Wife, she is great.
Have a good sleep Ireland,

Do you get everything you want? You don't, well I declare!
That's strange-I have the same complaint, perhaps its not so rare.
The things we don't want, come to us in bunches every day,
But when we really like a thing, it seems to stay away.
We hope and wish, and pray and cry, and scheme and work and plan. While our desires remain beyond the reach of mortal man.

So, after years of fruitless hope,I think i'll cease to fret.
And when I don't get things I like, I'll like the things I get!
