By: Lucy Catley

Age: 12 – 13

From dark to night,
I hide from the light
Scared for my life,
Scared of the knife

Boom, boom go the bombs,
I have to keep calm,
1,2,3, … breathe
Hide underneath

I read my book,
I hide in my nook.
Everyone should have a book,
Because, Look…

I am in a war
Where there is gore.
But you see
I am happy being me

A book is what you need
To lead
To help you breathe
