Post of The Month (July)

Aidan is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

    I looked you in the eyes,
    As you came at me with a knife,
    I couldn’t move,
    I couldn’t hide,
    And with each stride,
    I really thought I was going to die.

    You walked across that living room,
    My back against a wall,
    You came up so close,
    And you looked oh so very tall.

    I pleaded in my head,
    I begged you through my eyes,
    For the only sound I made,
    Was my heart beating like a train.

    I knew my mum was in there,
    Somewhere in the dark,
    I only hoped she would open her eyes,
    Before mine close for a final time.

      SUCCESS is not final, FAILURE is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts
