Blurb-

Downtrodden and disheartened John McGrath, a malnourished eighteen year old cotton mill worker longs to escape the miserable working environment that has suppressed him for years.

Trapped under the tyrannical eye of the factory foreman Mr Hopps, John finds solstice in the wisdom of his best friend and fellow worker Caine Davies, who assures him that times will change.

A refreshing new chapter is offered to John in the form of ladies’ companion, Maira MacWilliams who reinforces his love and trust in others. With his new found confidence a career pathway is opened and better prospects are on the horizon. John’s life will never be the same again, but can happiness have a price?

A chance given


There once was a quirky tailor shop which stood quite alone

It had a sloping roof and a crackling fire; coloured cloth in every tone

This tailor shop seemed lonely for only one soul worked there

And day and night Mr Duce sewed, convinced that no one cared

One day there came a tap at the door and in stepped a malnourished boy

He had spindly arms and sunken cheeks. He was looking to be employed

Mr Duce could only frown. The child stated he had come from the mill

He wanted to chuckle but instead stood back as he leaned on the window sill

This boy had something about him for he seemed gentle and sincere

But there he stood like a timid mouse and appeared to be riddled with fear

Mr Duce took a breath, and with care thought his next sentence through

He nodded, pointing to the bench and told the boy to show him what he could do.

A Way Out


Man at wits end

I’m not going to lie any longer, there’s no hope and I am done

I’ve been a useless boyfriend; I’ve fought in arguments which can’t be won

I’ve debated ways of doing this, but there are no painless options

I need a quick way out, not to die slowly from a toxic concoction

My family don’t know, but I’ve seen my Mum for the last time

But I can’t confess to her, they’re not her issues, they are mine

I can sincerely say that I’m done for, Joe doesn’t love me anymore

The man I once looked up to; he was the role model I adored

I thought he cared for me too, but he turned his back on me

Perhaps if I end it now, from my suffering I can finally be free

I’m feeling light, and dizzy. This medication messes with my head

I might have taken too much, but I don’t care, I wish I was dead.
