To the broken and downtrodden
To those who feel ignored or forgotten
I write this as 2020 is now in full flow.
Some people entered the New Year not filled with the same hope and optimism as those around them.
Perhaps as the fireworks launched on New Year’s the emptiness within you burned just a strong.
Or maybe you enjoyed the night but couldn’t ignore the feeling that someone who could no longer be there should have been by your side sharing the moment.
Maybe you’re entering the New Year jobless; having fallen far from the benchmark of success you set yourself the year before.
Perhaps you look at the New Year ahead and something won’t let you be happy; the uncertainty that the next 12 months may hold fills you with dread.
Just know that you have not been forgotten. You’re in my thoughts. And things will change; it may be a slow-burning change but it will come.
