It’s been a while since I’ve shared my poetry on my blog. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you will know that this blog started with me writing poetry and has evolved over time. I plan to merge both my creative side and my business side on here more often, and I hope you enjoy.

This is a poem called Please Don’t Rush Me. It was inspired by the Windrush Generation, the recent Windrush Scandal, and the fact that we celebrated the first annual Windrush Day on the 22nd June 2019.

The Windrush Generation refers to the immigrants who were invited to the UK between 1948 and 1971 from Caribbean countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, and Barbados. They were invited by the British government to help re-build the country after World War 2 which came to an end in 1945.

Please Don’t Rush Me – T K Williams-Nelson

The Windrush Scandal emerged in 2018 where people were wrongly detained, denied legal rights and in some cases, were wrongly deported from the UK by the Home Office.

Ethnic minorities continue to be marginalised, and this will never change. That doesn’t mean we can’t express how we feel through our talents, our work, and our voices. We can never be silenced. Let that be known.
