Ingrid Brokenborogh, Grade 10, Corrimal High School
3rd in the 'Watch Out! 2000' competition
Within her mind a spectrum of colours displayed her every thought,
As though her life a story in a book that she had bought.
Within his eyes were pools of blue that filled his eyes with sorrow,
And made him look as if he thought that there would never be tomorrow.
Her life was like chocolate, sweet and wrapped in gold.
His life is like a winter day he only feels the cold.
She thinks that life is short and has to be enjoyed.
He thinks life is painful and he’d wish his shoes were void.
Does she realise nothings perfect and it’ll always be that way?
Does he know that he can be like her and not to fade away?
