Missing my old town

editorial image

Missing something in my heart

and its not just me ,

Jarrows lost its heart too

and its plain to see .

I really love this place

the Jarrow people too ,

but its characters gone

and its friendliness too.

I played in these streets

when i was a kid ,

with swords made of wood

and dustbin lids.

Kids could play in the street

no worries of crime ,

now you watch your back.

all of the time.

This world has changed

its not a nice place ,

our Goverment should listen

because its a disgrace.

All the respect has gone

community spirit too,

these are just my thoughts

do you feel this way too ?
