Dear you, MY MANY WISHES
Author AYANDA CHIKIRIVAU (12 years old)
I am in cloud nine writing to you about myself and my wishes
I am a girl of your age
I have so many wishes,
Wishing to be a jeweller
Wishing I was a tree
Wishing I was a school.
As a jeweller,
I would collect lots of jewellery
Old and new
Redesign it into a marvellous piece.
As a tree,
I would be so useful to people
I would provide oxygen,
I would provide firewood and timber
In the villages, people would depend on me.
As a school,
Children would come and learn
To have a better and brighter future
To learn other foreign languages
Oh how very rewarding.
I wish I could visit your country,
See you for the first time.
Tell you all about myself
Tell you all about my beloved country Zimbabwe.
