Read: a poem by an older person with dementia who took part in a recent PEN project

All of us

Why do we make ourselves worry
About others?
Why worry?
Why rushing for?
Why running for?
You don’t stop and think
Do we?
I don’t know why or where or what
I been doing
I’m just rocking out
Through me bits

 

 

This poem came out of a project English PEN ran with Living Words in partnership with the European Commission Representation in the United Kingdom.
