As preparations for our first staged reading heat up, I am reminded to step back and remember why we are doing this in the first place.
A POEM OF HOPE
by Leanne T.
Riverside Primary School, UK
One laugh can start a minute.
One rose can dawn the hope.
One seed can set of nature.
One creature can spark spring.
One friend can make a difference.
One breath of fresh air will relieve our lungs.
One sunbeam will light our world.
One star guides millions of minds.
One laugh can change the gloom.
One word starts a life and it’s all up to you.
Leanne was one of the winners of a 2007 Writing Competition presented by a UK charity. Thank you, Leanne, for sharing your poem and reminding us of our mission.
