Amy Padmore, Grade 6, Danebank Anglican School for Girls
Small streams of light enter my window,
Hope, happiness of the outside world,
Rekindle my longing to escape the sea of fears,
Obstacles that encumber my flight.
Awe inspiring colours of the sky,
Wandering outside in the warm sanctuary,
When the leaves of my dark inner self fall,
Like a wild bush fire with a ferocious flame.
This yearning inside is like a struggle,
Expressions on my face to be seen,
Bright, vivid quietly waiting,
For what I eternally want,
I was soaked by the water, like my stories- untold,
Explore my curiosity my thoughts unconscious,
No-one else can claim the blame,
I was amazed; I was ever so bold.
