WORKING AT THE TOP OF THE CLIFF

Filed under: General — mama @ 10:24 am Fri 14th June 2019

By the time something reaches the bottom, let’ just say it is not good.

We have a problem Huston, we need to work at the top.

I doubt if every Man Group along the stretch of our country was visited that you would find much in the way of a hearty laugh or kumbaeya..no, and rightly so, in times of trouble there is only seriousness until success. Success is hard to make out of the messy situation that faces many Men after separation.

The damage is there, waiting to be done.

We don’t want to have Men having to go there. We need some preventative measures and no one is ever gunna offer this, it is just not coming.

Firstly the countrywide population has to be made aware that there is a problem,,, just in six months more rules have been put in place like road spikes, no body knows…. not even the road users!

The massive fact that the statistics for SUICIDE are being investigated for a specific profession of Male driven industry is indeed a window into this world in which the Men of this country live.

This work is hopefully going to drive more cliff top work for Men here.
It is imperative that all that can be openly discussed will be done so and that the conversation it kept alive , do not let people dwell only on this one profession as politicians and media sometimes do,, this needs to be looking at the wide view, a real spot light.

    I did a couple of #RamereShorts today.

    Not everyone experiences separation the same so changed the last two lines to reflect different experiences.

    #RamereShorts

    He left his home
    It was over
    He had to get away
    A hollow outline of his former self
    Wounds
    Open and raw
    Grief, an aching heart
    A broken man

    #RamereShorts

    He left his home
    It was over
    He had to get away
    A hollow outline of his former self
    Wounds
    Open and raw
    And thoughts of death
    Darkened his mind

    Ok here’s mine.

    He left his home
    It was over
    He had to get away
    A hollow outline of his former self
    Wounds
    Open and raw
    Bairns in his heart
    As he strode through the door.

    Two Men came to my door this morning, they were from Jehovah Witness, they were very nice and very concerned, we chatted about the societal conundrum that it is and about youngsters and the lack of male/family influences etc. It seems to me there are a lot of Men out there who know and feel this pressure pot…. I get told this (change of society) has been in the making for some long while,,, if people are feeling the soul of humanity slipping away then surely there is no time to waste.

    Johovah Witness

    If you’re busy and you want to see their jaws drop and their backs as they run for the gate, just say,

    “I am orthodox Jew.”

    Evan ,,, I was not too busy and when I rattled on to them their jaws did drop as I wished them luck, told them my lovely neighbour was also doing her bit by helping others as they drove away to see her… I believed their concerns were as real as my own.
