Gemma Boersma, Grade 2, St Thomas Aquinas Primary School
Finalist in the 'The Inside Story 2020' competition
While all the world is stuck inside
Dreaming the doors will open wide,
I'm not full of doom and gloom
I quite enjoy my silent room.
Playing with toys on my bed
I think up games inside my head.
I make a cubby house from my sheet
And put my favourite song on repeat.
I read stories and dream I'm there
Imagining I'm a princess with golden hair.
I make up songs and dance away
Knowing I'll be back at school one day.
