Daily thought for the day ...

For Manchester

Afterwards

Another day begins to dawn

Many more tears begin to fall as memories recall

The brightness of a day before the darkness came

Before the pain of loss

Took away tomorrow in a heartbeat stilled by hate

And yet

Another day begins to dawn

Despite the empty space where your face once smiled

Where a thousand memories of yesterday reside

Before the pain of loss

Took away tomorrow in a gasping, grasping sorrow

And yet

Afterwards

We stood together as

Another day begins to dawn

We found our strength in a magnitude of ways

The brightness of tomorrow came to light our days

And while the pain of loss

Never quite will leave us

We will not falter, grieve and fall

We will not be bereft of love nor

Filled with hate and as

Another day begins to dawn

We know that

Afterwards

Is all we have to let us

Love Again

Welcome to Just Jane

Welcome to my website!  What will you find here? Well, when I started thinking about getting my own platform to spout forth from, it was just going to be somewhere to post my blogs – I blog about anything which comes into my dizzy little head. Then, as I began writing again, part time – catch some of my short stories on scriggler – I thought why not include some of my work on the website? Now, I’m writing my first novel (how exciting and brilliant is THAT?) under the pen name of Amy J Steinberg, check out the My Books section for updates on how the writing is going and to read excerpts.

Then there’s my Twitter account @itsjustjane.962 – you can catch some of my tweets – sometimes hilarious, sometimes serious, sometimes downright annoying and outspoken, but that’s me!  Follow me by clicking the follow button and have a tweet with me.

Businesses can advertise, writers can create links to their own work, estate agents can post information about themselves, community groups – come and join my community, individuals – take the centre stage and write about anything that you are passionate about and I’ll put you in the spotlight.  I’m aiming to take a little bit of everything the world has to offer and compact it into my own little space, which I’ll share with you!
