Poetry from workshops

Walking along the corridors
Not getting anywhere
Looking for a face
That I would recognise...

How did I get here?
Who brought me?
Why am I here?
How long am I here?
When can I go?
Will I go?
How do I get there?

How did I get here?
I should be at home
I’ve got things to do
Who’s got the baby?

Can you open the door?
Got to get to my Mum’s
She will be waiting
Don’t like it here
My hands should be busy

Today I am feeling scared
Tomorrow I will be frightened
I don’t know what’s happening
So please someone help me!

Today is a strange day
And all emotions are running away with me
I don’t know what is happening
So please someone help me!

Yesterday I knew
Today I have forgotten
Where am I?
Why am I here?
Do my family know that I am here?
Always lots of questions...
Who can answer them?

Here we are, another day
But I don’t know what day it is
Why am I so confused?
They tell me this is my home
So where are all the people I know?

My daughter came to see me
the other day.
So where is my little girl?
She seems so far away.

Why is my life so empty?
There are so many spaces in my head.

Please help me I don’t know where I am
I would like to go home but don’t know if I can
I think I know you, but I’m not sure
Please help me as I know nothing anymore!
Mummy Mummy where are you?
I don’t know what to do

I was out in the Garden
Flowers are blooming
But I felt I was glooming

I heard an unfamiliar voice
But it sounds so sweet
She calls my name
And offered me a treat

I felt so relieved
When she held my hand
I don’t really know her
But she makes me feel loved.

I take a glass of sherry dear
A sherry evening I would choose
With children dancing on my shoes
But instead I am strangely settled here
In the tedia of
Tea dear? Tea dear? Tea dear?

I’m a lucky lovely lady named Kerry
I love nothing more than a nice glass of sherry
My family come round and see me
I live with my friends
We enjoy music, fitness and fun
I love her fashion
The girls are all lovely and happy
“I’m very lucky to live here”
I always have a smile

I’m scared and confused
Who am I?
What am I doing here?
Am I lost?
Some things look familiar
Who is looking after my baby?
And when will my husband be home?
Is this home?
Things are going on around me
But I don’t know what to do
Can someone help me please?

I feel confused and all alone
Where the hell is my home?
What is going on with me?
I do not understand
I look into the mirror
And what do I see
An OAP looking back at me
I do not agree
This is NOT ME!!
