    I am posting Greg's latest post as it is so powerful. What more can words say?


    [​IMG]







    ONLY POETRY CAN BEGIN TO EXPRESS PROFOUND SUFFERING. TO WITNESS LINDA WEEPING IN TORMENT DEFIES WORDS, IT IS SO HORRIBLE.

    Utterly broken by the noise assault upon my being
    It enters into every nook and cranny
    of my existence,
    every cell,
    every organ,
    it seems,
    And devours me from the inside,
    paralysing me from head to toe,
    so that time after time,
    no part escapes.
    I am tormented.
    I am scalded with pain.
    I am raging at the injustice:
    the continued violation of my home,
    my living space,
    my body,
    my life,
    my cells,
    battered,
    twisted,
    demolished,
    repeatedly
    till I can no longer bear
    another second
    of the horror of it.
    It defines my life.
    It breaks me into tiny fragments
    so that my body will not,
    cannot,
    is not
    able
    to hold me up,
    to feel,
    to move,
    to think,
    to escape
    this daily torture
    from loud and violating noise attacks
    to even simple ordinary things.
    It is unrelenting
    and a violent assault
    upon an already weak
    and fractured body.
    My life is being torn from me
    And ripped apart
    repeatedly,
    with crass ignorance
    And deliberate
    carelessness
    or abuse of power and might
    or simply, just by being in the room with me now,
    in the wrong moment,
    in the wrong way,
    at the wrong angle,
    without realising the danger
    at hand,
    till I am left weeping
    and diminished,
    my soul crying for mercy
    and tattered
    from decades
    of medical neglect.
