A postcard from Marsh Farm by Anya Hobbs

A Postcard from Marsh Farm

Years of broken promises fuelled a generation of mistrust

Walls built up, an afterthought, keep going, but who to trust

It’s the dodgy part of town they say, but still they cannot see

The actions of the few dictate the reputation of the many

Focus

Listen to the words we say and pay attention to what we need

Engage with us and understand, choose some of us to take the lead

This is our postcard, our Marsh Farm, our pasts and futures too

When you give us the power to change, the many outweigh the few.
