John Bennett
I am a reluctant writer, having not written anything until 2016, three years into retirement. Stories about my family were commonplace during my childhood and eventually I came into possession of the family archives, including papers, letters and photographs. There was also letters and documents relating to the correspondence between a father and son who eventually was killed in Crete in 1941. This now is a work in progress and will be entitled 'The letters', a very thought provoking story seen through the eyes of a man, who himself suffered undiagnosed PTSD from the first world war, in his compulsion to track down the resting place of his first born son. I have published my observations on the first lockdown, its an irreverent look at life, through hours of watching the world and neighbours go by! Other books are awaiting publishing, the 'Memories of a Kentish Childhood' is about my childhood growing up in a rural community in more simpler times. This will be out early next year, Sir Michael Morpurgo OBE has written the foreword! I write travel blogs, having visited the Caribbean many times in the last ten years, and Europe over the last forty years. I have a facebook page for those who follow social media, please take a look I have a claim to fame, in 1977 I was the world champion for keeping two ferrets down my trousers, a record I held for over three years......what did I get? Free beer at the local pub for a year!

Latest Poem

For every tear 
My soul fades away 
And words are a spear 
Killing with no delay.

I feel so broken and diminished 
While no one cares 
I am angry, undone, and finished 
While no one listens cries 
In the dark of the night 
And yet, I dare to fight.

Steal my joy 
I am a toy of pain 
A soul to eradicate 
I feel now so plain.

I wished that more and more 
I could be straightforward 
To tell the world my words are a door 
To protect my feelings from the sword 
The spoken words can hurt with no delay
While my dreams and desire to stay 
Stays by nothing but the thread 
While you forget all I said 
So far...
