For us Daddys watching our little girls grow up…..

[Parent thing here] HUGE EVENT happening here [Well it is for me] 😦 One of my two Daughters is having a 1st EVER sleep-ever at a friends house 🙂 One moment we are holding a little baby, before you know it, they are going to stay with friends and we also have two sons who are now Parents themselves, THEY GROW UP TOO QUICK! I demand my Daughters stop growing up 😀 But I am selfish if I do this, lol – And me being the Dad I am, I am all worried and concerned 😀 People mock me for this, but it’s who I am, I fear no person, yet small details can hit my heart so hard. Ever since I was like 8 years old, as long as I can remember I been like this, always HATE saying goodbye to people I love, is it a flaw? is it a bad thing? or is it just love? And why is ‘Love’ so Taboo? I think I know what it is, you will feel like all as you do. She stayed with Family many times, but this is her first sleep-over with friends. Some poor woman has about 8 kids sleeping over, all from the same class-room 😀 Good luck to her I say. So she about to go for the night, I can see the house she is going to stay the night in, from my house, ish. Yet still I am getting all upset and worried. But hiding it well for her. She is a wee bag of emotions too. Totally nothing to worry about, let alone write about it on Social Media. But I don’t wear my ‘Heart on my sleeve’. I wear my everything for all to see on my sleeve. I hide NO EMOTIONS, I never have been able to, so I stopped. What I will say is. What would people rather? [A] A big angry bastard of a man/woman, or [B] A man/woman who cares? All parents and all men and woman, what emotion could you live with, what emotions do you hold true to you. WHEN WE THINK “WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK’, WE ARE NOT OURSELVES, no! we are becoming what society EXPECTS from us. I say feck Society. I got a heart and I use it best I can. I love my Daughters more than a word can explain, and the small things hurt so hard. Crazy thing right? lol – The thing I think people close or near me can’t understand about me is, on 1 side, in the right moment, a bad moment, I will protect what is mine, who I love, with MY LIFE, I am scared of nobody and nothing. Yet flip that old coin over, and like most, if not all parents with kids, be them young or old, WE NEVER LOSE THAT PROTECTIVE FEELING. When they are not in our sight we all act and feel different. If I am anything, I am just frickin real, lol – So tell me Friends. How are people like me judged? I am interested 😀

The Johnny Cash and June Carter story. That night in Canada


A love nothing on Earth could stop….

So yeah, I think deeply and analyze things so much so I can know them and understand them to their absolute understanding for myself. Make me a bad person? I don’t think so. I love my Partner, I love my life, but if I could steal any person’s life and make it my own it would be Johnny Cash. The movie Walk the line portrayed the bad side of Johnny Cash and his early life, when the movie ends Johnny and June spent a lifetime together, loving, singing, touring the World and living a dream born from pain and horror almost. I love Johnny Cash, not till I had seen the movie ‘Walk the line’ did I really understand the story. The utterly unconditional love that nothing on Earth could stop Johnny loving June, and June loving Johnny. This 1 song is a heart wrencher, it sums up not just Johnny Cash and how he lost his brother in an accident when he was a little boy, how his Father rejected him.

He had his demons

He had his demons

Johnny’s life till he met June was unhappy, he had listened to June Carter since he was a little boy, June also had an unhappy start with 2 failed marriages. When Jonny 1st seen her before his 2nd gig, it was love, right in that moment a love was born that would hurt others but create a life for 2 people who were 2 souls who found each other who also had a son. Is there anything more special than this? This song, just wow. If you have not seen the movie, the link is above. The story of Johnny and June is as real as love stories go, well at least I think so. Please, enjoy some love for a time, put everything else away and just feel a moment. In this video we see the real clip of Johnny asking June for the 4oth time to marry him, just watch when she gives into his love, THAT THERE, IS LOVE. As strong as it comes, just look into her eyes, she is gone. And what a life they had. An amazing story from an amazing time on this Earth


At 1 Minute 20 seconds into this song, look at June’s eyes, she couldn’t resist, this is SPECIAL

Hurt ♫ Images ♪ Music ♫ Johnny Cash ♫

images (1)Often in life we all get lost and try to define ourselves into something better, often when it’s impossible. This is all good here, it’s a song by Jonny Cash called ‘Hurt’ with my images. I tried to define both myself and the song’s meaning to me. Always people are different, some do 1 thing and another won’t like that thing, but we must learn as a species to accept another’s ways as we would like others to accept our ways. I am trying to define myself and change myself today, you might know my story, you might not but we all have one, I just choose to share. We all have a story, we all have choice to share this story or to keep it locked away, I must tell my story. Music is the only thing our species agree on in terms of what it does for us. In moments we can all fall but getting back up can be hard. So we look for ways to stand up, we seek reason to stand up, all of us, you and I including the World. I am a person trying to stand up but also stay up, I decide to give my thinking to this page. Before I wasn’t the Shaun I am today, I am now in middle ground, almost at a road with 2 paths and I have already chosen and I am walking my path. This is all this video is to me. I love the song, singer and it’s lyrics, they help me today in my moment. If I can help 1 person in our World out of 7 Billion then I am glad I did this video and shared it’s meaning with images I related the lyrics and meaning of the song with. I hope you enjoy this. I am having amazing fun taking a song and applying my visual thoughts to it. It really is amazing fun, and it helps me. Who do I harm doing what I do? Who are you to judge? Always no hate from me, just reality and reason I like. I will be doing more of these, I love doing them, it sure is better than watching paint dry

A Dad saying goodbye to his Daughter…. x

Sometimes we have no words, all we can try and do is comfort each other. I have many friends and family in Glasgow, today they hurt. I am 40 or so miles East but I feel it. One of the people we lost was from Edinburgh and I know people who knew her. I know the family, we cried when we found out. We are trying to help the people who hurt the most because their loss is forever. I seen two songs about Glasgow and I just hope these songs are ok. I love Glasgow, my Football team Celtic play there, not that stupid football matters. I know the people, the humour but I also know the strength that will be seen in Glasgow today. Glasgow embodies the spirit of Scotland, we all hurt but we will care and try to help, it’s what we do

I share two songs to try and sooth the pain. Bob Marley once said ‘We can inject love through music’ and I believe this to be true. Through music we can make things better. When we go to church the music soothes us, at funerals the lyrics bond us. I don’t know what to say so I will share two songs for you Glasgow. Me and my kin have you in our hearts always x

Billy Connolly I Wish I Was In Glasgow


Passenger Feather on the Clyde Lyric Video

♫ James Arthur- Roses ft. Emeli Sandé ♫


Sometimes music can send us to a place of meaning, a place we recognise and are comfy in. A moment where our souls fly and our minds collide. A simple place where we can hide behind meaningful words and music that explains exactly how we feel in a moment be it a good or bad moment. This song I go to when I am in the place I am just now..

We can only know love by being hate, we only understand love through pain


I got myself through a childhood many would have kept in their heart for a lifetime. I got past hard moments that could destroy me today should I let them. Things I did that I hate myself for. I have to let them go. I was a father at 18 and again aged 20, spent a lot of time in prison as a kid. I then took on the World in the worst way possible, but I won. I have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Syndrome, but it won’t win, not yet, I am too young

The day arrived and I knew I had to change, Dawn pleaded with me, my love for her was so strong, so I changed. I became Dad and a proper partner. I excelled at everything I did. I suffered in pain then, I suffer too much pain today but I refuse to be 2nd best or let people down

I am the kid in the boat. I have to tell this story –


Many times I let people down, but there is nothing I can do, this illness I have kills my insides and my mind sometimes. But through it all, I excelled. I am a winner, I don’t let words fail me or use words as an excuse to walk I don’t let my pain throw me backwards.

Some call it eye of the tiger, it was what it was when I did boxing training as a kid, ‘Eye of the Tiger Shaun’ was taught to me by a good teacher, he made me never give in, when I was down he screamed ‘GET UP, GET UP’ with a vicious voice. I remember I was in a training fight one day and I was up against a kid 3 years  or so older than me, seconds into the fight I was on the canvas and forgetting who I was, the count was at 5 and I had jelly legs and then I seen his eyes ‘GET UP, GET UP  SHAUN’ And I did, the fight ended in a draw. But it was a training fight, for me, it gave me so much pride and I got respect for it, the proper kind of respect

I then took on Football, 19 trophies in 15 years, I was the man screaming at my players ‘Get up, Get up’ I demanded my players stand up. Then my pain came and I struggled to stand up but this voice came to my mind ‘GET UP SHAUN, GET UP’ And I stayed up, 15 years of memories and I left a winner. The pain won this one. So I was at a cross roads in life. ‘What do I do now?’ I got offered the chance to be on Radio and write about the football team I follow, Glasgow Celtic, and I took it


download (2)So here I am, I am a writer 😀 If you had told me I would be a published columnist and get accolade from people well known in Scotland for what I write about why my Country should be free from this one sided Union,  I would have laughed at you

Here I am at nearly 5am on a cold Scottish morning writing because the pain is so bad I can’t sleep. But I am up, I got up, I could easily go and lay down but no, this voice comes to me ‘GET UP, GET UP  SHAUN’ And to this day I will always remember that voice. The guy is dead now, or as good as should we say. Then my Dad, he taught me to never give in, my Mum also. I was taught life can be hard and to never give in, to always get up.

Then Dawn, my princess really came to life on me, she saved me from staying down one day, kind words, a reassuring cuddle, a look in the eyes that were all love. I stayed up. So here I am. I write news and write for Glasgow Celtic. I am not a Bigot nor a bad person anymore. I tell it as it is, my words can be cold sometimes, but why tell a lie to someone when a truth that hurts them helps them long term

I am a blessed guy, I am up, I am staying up, this pain won’t take me, I will win, I don’t think I know how to lose, I have never really lost in life. In love I have never hurt, just the good kind of hurt, a hurt that is love. I am going nowhere. People can threaten me all day long, I will just get back up and look you in the eye like a tiger. The way I was taught to do. So send your emails, come onto my blog and pretend, I don’t care. I wasn’t born yesterday and I don’t zip up the back either. I am street and I live to love and love to live. Get in my way I will show you hurt. I will show you what real pain is.

Don’t ask me who I am writing this to, they know, and now so do you

More love

Less hate


The Pain Of Love – Poem



Along comes illness, pain and more to cause distress

You expect a certain person to stay at your side. never regress

life gets too hard for them, so they bail, leave you be, need a new address

Leave you hurting and angry, a new life awaits, but lets not cross that bridge


Over 20 years of  love so young, trust and lust, what happened to us

I never understand when people can’t get others have this illness

Would you leave someone with Cancer? It’s the same so drop your head

what I do? start again, back to the beginning? Why am I filled with dread


 illness caused this, showed itself, tried to destroyed us

It comes back for more, soon I have nothing left to hold

I have the love of 100 men for you, I wish you understood

I don’t know what pain you suffer watching me, but I try


I became a new Shaun, a trade happened without asking

It took me away and brought back a broken version of me

I know what’s what, but I know love beats everything in life

The weight of love will hold us together, you need to trust me


Life can be cruel and hurtful, but only if we let it in and entertain it

Allow it to crush us, kill us, make us different, change the rules

We can’t allow that to happen, too much at stake, its called love

A life filled with moments and memories, we can’t forget them


In the end we have each other, this is all we have, we keep it

We allow in a love that is so bright we lose sight of anyone else

A love so strong not even a bomb could break it or harm it

We run the show, never let go, I will never not notice you


Celtic family mourns brave Bhoy Oscar Knox


Oscar with Hoopy the Huddle Hound

Everyone at The Celtic Network send our condolences to Stephen, Leona and Izzie on the passing of ‘Wee Oscar’. Throughout his short time with us he inspired and united all the people that were touched by his story. Sleep well Oscar in the arms of angels. Rest In Peace. xxx

You will never walk alone

Utter heartache today for the Celtic Family. Today we lost one of our own, a kid, 5 year old Oscar Knox, the Celtic family had raised money and done everything we could to help the kid and his family, the club, fans, everyone. Sadly today he passed away and I am one from a million plus people in an amazing extended family to shed a tear. Oscar was very brave and he will be sadly missed. Many who don’t understand football (Soccer in the USA) need to understand we treat football as a part of our life, we breath it, we are it, we become it. Today the Celtic Family is one in our mourning for a very special little guy who touched everyone’s heart. We hoped and prayed, today he is with God and Celtic legends from the past. I cried when I found out and I am shedding a teat as I write this. We are a unique football club Celtic, we care, we share and we show passion and love always, the term Bhoy is a Celtic term for people reading elsewhere in the world

♫ A song for young Oscar, You’ll Never Walk Alone ♫

This is from the official Glasgow Celtic Football Club site

OSCAR Knox, the brave little Bhoy from Belfast whose courageous fight against cancer touched the hearts of the Celtic Family, has passed away at the age of five.

At this desperately sad time, the thoughts and prayers of everyone at Celtic are with his parents, Stephen and Leona, his little sister, Izzie, and all of his family and friends.

The devastating news was announced by the family this morning. They said: ‘Our beautiful, amazing and much-loved son, Oscar James Knox gained his angel wings yesterday afternoon. Sleep tight little man Xx.’

Oscar was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer, back in November 2011. And over the next few years, his courage, bravery and spirit inspired people throughout the world.

The Celtic Family responded to the fundraising appeal of Oscar’s parents, and more than £600,000 was raised to fund specialist treatment for Oscar.

And last July, when Belfast side, Cliftonville, came to Glasgow for their UEFA Champions League qualifier, Oscar proudly donned his green and white Hoops and led Celtic out before the game as team mascot alongside captain, Scott Brown.

Sadly, towards the end of March this year, Oscar’s condition deteriorated, and his family announced that he was moving into a hospice.

Celtic’s recent home game against Ross County saw supporters offer a minute’s applause during the match in support of Oscar as fans sent their best wishes to the brave little bhoy and his family.

Sadly, on Thursday, Oscar lost his battle with the illness that he had fought with incredible bravery for one so young.

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: “This is absolutely devastating news and our thoughts and prayers are with Oscar’s parents, Stephen and Leona, and his little sister, Izzie, at this desperately sad time.

“We can’t even begin to understand the pain of their loss, but I hope that there will be a small measure of consolation in knowing that there was genuine love and affection for Oscar from the Celtic Family throughout the world.

“Oscar’s courage throughout his illness was truly inspirational, and it was a real pleasure for everyone at the club to meet Oscar when he was our team mascot last July.

“This is a very sad day for the Celtic Family but, more importantly, for the Knox family, and our thoughts and prayers are with them today.”

Days when you feel ugly inside and out

Stuck in my own mind

Stuck in my own mind



Today is one of these days where I feel I am not worthy of the love and attention from loved ones. I am in my bubble. Remember this?

I don’t want to talk to anyone; I don’t want sympathy as I am not that that type, as I sit here at my laptop utter emotionless, and pretending to the world I am ok, I am not ok. And here is where this is page, this blog saves me

The song below is how I feel, word for word, I am sorry I disappoint you; even you though may say I have not. I want badly, to be that fit lad again who could walk far, never mind run. Today I was ok, then in a split second, one picture, I felt the darkness come, and it is all over me right now

Right now I feel so selfish, I have hidden myself away in my Kitchen knowing I will get peace to just be left alone. It is a very selfish place. And right now I can only think about my partner, again, the song below will explain. I feel utterly useless and of use to nobody right now, just this second I guess I could not be here and nobody would care. Although this is the depression telling me this. I am so tired; I have fallen asleep 3 times during the course of today, the pain I am in and my refusal to take the pills means the pain is making me fall asleep and affecting my thinking.

Who am I? I am just a number, a nobody, just a useless disabled person who writes pathetic blogs in a secret diary I share with the planet. Why would my partner, who is all beauty inside and out want me? Why would she, and why does she put up with me when I climb into my bubble and just want left alone. “Take the pills” a voice tells me, “No” I reply, as I know they make me false and make me better, but a false better. So I sit here, in a busy house, all alone. I sit here speaking to a Laptop as I can’t share this with anyone in my house. They would listen, but why should I burden them with my problems, I do every day.

I feel utterly useless. Did I disappoint you? Did I let you down? I feel I did. No words this second will change. I love you, and I always will and always have, since the day I seen you in your school uniform when we were 12 and 13 years old, but today  I want to remember us as we used to be

Did I disappoint you or let you down?

Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?

‘Cause I saw the end before we’d begun,

Yes I saw you were blind and I knew I had won.

So I took what’s mine by eternal right.

Took your soul out into the night.

It may be over but it won’t stop there,

I am here for you if you’d only care.

You touched my heart you touched my soul.

You changed my life and all my goals.

And love is blind and that I knew when,

My heart was blinded by you.

I’ve kissed your lips and held your head.

Shared your dreams and shared your bed.

I know you well, I know your smell.

I’ve been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer and when I wake,

You can’t break my spirit – it’s my dreams you take.

And as you move on, remember me,

Remember us and all we used to be

I’ve seen you cry, I’ve seen you smile.

I’ve watched you sleeping for a while.

I’d be the father of your child.

I’d spend a lifetime with you.

I know your fears and you know mine.

We’ve had our doubts but now we’re fine,

And I love you, I swear that’s true.

I cannot live without you.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.

In mine when I’m asleep.

And I will bear my soul in time,

When I’m kneeling at your feet.

Goodbye my lover.

Goodbye my friend.

You have been the one.

You have been the one for me.

I’m so hollow, baby, I’m so hollow.

I’m so, I’m so, I’m so hollow.

 I’m so hollow, baby, I’m so hollow.

I’m so, I’m so, I’m so hollow.
