Am I a bad driver ? Its something that's drivers have been known to ask themselves. We drivers are constantly on our guard to drive well and safely at all times. Are we travelling at the right speed, signaling when needed. Mirror, signal, manoeuvre ! Is it safe to overtake? Tiredness kills ! So many signs warning us. The news is constantly reporting about road deaths, road rage and speeding accidents. So many of these resulting in deaths, not only the perpetrators, but innocent people. Cars are getting faster and more powerful, yet the roads are more congested, with more cars struggling to get to their destination. Result .... stress, anger and lateness. Is this the way to continue or is there an alternative solution ? Sadly public transport is not much help, doesn't go where you want to, at the time you need it and is so expensive. Cycling is too dangerous and not everyone can cycle too.
Am I a bad driver ? No I'm not !
The pounding of my heart, deep within my chest
Wow I`m still alive, and know that I`ve been blessed
Had a difficult time, been through the wars
Tough decisions to make, had to settle some scores
Seen some horrific things, more than I would want
Nightmares run through my head, they will always haunt
Looked death in the face, but I stand before you now
Many wounds need healing, not sure how
All I want is some down time and to chill
For where there`s a way, there`s always a will
Reached the end of the line, no more to roam
This old soldier`s signing off, time to go home!!
I was asked to write a poem about this little rescued dog call Roger. This is his story and some pictures of him. Hope you like the poem. Baby Roger is a 9 month old German Shepherd puppy who was rescued by the awesome folks at Oswego Animal Shelter, Oswego, NY. He was found running down a rural country highway on Easter Sunday night scared, severely emaciated with a choke collar embedded around his neck. He has severe damage to his nose, mouth & jaw from something tied around it for an extended period of time. He was brought to the shelter with a high fever & numerous other injuries. Baby Roger is extremely small for a puppy his age due to the lack of food & nutrition. He is going to need facial reconstruction surgery, in addition to long term care. He has progressing lameness in his hip & rear legs which is being monitored. Roger has suffered severe emotional trauma which requires extensive specialized training & rehabilitation. Baby Roger will also receive stem cell therapy from Mobile StemCare
