Danny Kemp

I did this first one as a way of illustrating that fear some have of darkness and the sounds within.

Watching eyes, listening ears. Mouths aghast, more to fear. The door swung open, the light switched on. All our worries are past and gone.

With this one I had the News Broadcasts Channels and Newspapers in mind. It has always fascinated me that only on Christmas Day do they carry happy news. I wonder if we would all change our outlook on each other if more happiness was spread.

Lies and fear are what we are fed, to keep us worried and full of dread. If truth was the manner on which we could feast, could life be easier and panic cease?

—————————————-

I was at work today and thought of those who have paid tens of millions of pounds to live at the top of the “Shard’ in London. It is a towering, narrow shaped glazed building often with the very top shrouded by cloud.

Heads in clouds, millions they pay. To keep their lives far away. From those that walk the streets below. With doubts and problems as they flow through life’s mystic and the hand of fate that dealt the cards and sealed their hate.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
