A poem for National Poetry Day - "Hope" by Cherry Rudge

Hope - by Cherry Rudge

 “I can’t see the wood from the trees” she said
“I’m being overwhelmed by clutter” he said
“I’m too embarrassed to let anyone into my home to see the mess” she said
“STOP the sensory overload, it’s killing me!” they said.
“I’m drowning in paperwork”
“I feel like a prisoner in my own home”
 “There’s so much stuff I don’t know where to start”
“I hate it when people have a go at me about the chaotic way I live”
“No one understands….”
“It's not a lifestyle choice for me to live like this...”
“I wish they’d help me instead of being so judgemental”
“I feel so useless at getting organised - who on earth would want to help me?”

“I’ll help you” I said.
