Even They – When Our Supporters Suffer


Even they

Have their down days

Those ones who often

Buoy us up.

Yes, they too

Are dashed and smashed

Upon the rocks of life

Having their share of strife

They too have grown weary

At times swimming with


Seeming to show little fuss

As they tread water


In the power of the great


Their strokes tire

And waves wash them



Will have a day

Where the tumult of life’s sea

Catches them in

The melee


If they could be free

And drift gently, gently


And moor

Upon the care

For them

That we all share.



We all have those days, at times, even weeks, where life seems against us. This poem arose from moments when we see others cast upon the vicicissitudes of life and, is for them. For some musical accompaniment, you may like to listen to Eric Genuis’s The Tempest.

  1. Thanks Simon – love the poem and we all ‘fall’ into this sort of slot – and I’m loving the music – but things come right … it’s being peaceful and moving along slowly – not getting embroiled in ‘the junk’. Wonderful to be told about Eric Genuis and his music – thank you … cheers Hilary

      1. I saw a link across to that work … I’ll be back to listen sometime – cheers H

      1. I’m sure that was the case. I could think of a few faces myself while I was reading it and realised that of course, no one is a super human.
