Discussion: White Ribbon Day Poem

Hello everyone,

Tomorrow morning (AEST) I will be reading a poem that I wrote especially for White Ribbon Day.  The poem will be read at the Mayor’s breakfast at the Cultural Centre in Katoomba which starts at 7:30am.  The poem I’ve written is based on the structure of a web page on the White Ribbon Australia site. If you click on the link “Act Now” you will be taken to a page titled “Be an active by-stander”.  Hence the structure and title of the poem “The Active By-Stander”.  The poem is written from a particular point of view.  It took me to a very dark place, so dark that my friend asked me to preface the poem by saying it is not auto-biographical.

I will be posting it tomorrow morning.
