Getting it wrong

Yesterday I was approached by a woman as I was going to the bank. She told me she had been beaten up and asked for her train money.I said I didn’t have any money and was on my way to the bank. And when I returned she was gone. I feel so strongly I wasn’t ready. I need to get ready for change.

I went to see the Carol King musical ‘Beautiful in London. Afterwards I wrote ‘ I cannot, I will not walk past all these men in sleeping bags. Men are dying in droves. Twelve suicides a day has to stop’.

I am a qualified social worker and run a community project for vulnerable adults. I am passionate about social justice. I feel that every life matters. No-one is insignificant or invaluable. I also believe that everyone has the power to change, although some may not wish to. Essentially, I believe in hope. Hope Wells is my writing name.
