Hi everyone, I hope you’re doing fabulous and here is the results of last week’s poetry competition!
Contestants had to write a poem.. But with a story inside it, and we received a lot of awesome entries.
Now for the winner….
The winner is…SAGAR!
Congratulations! Here is the awesome poem he has written:
All of a sudden he broke,
“That’s right, all of it is right,
I can’t study, or play sports,
I’m so small that nobody sees me.”
“That’s not true”,
Came a calm counter,
“No, it’s so obvious, I’m no one”,
He said in agitation.
“When they walk by, they whisper and laugh,
When I sit alone and look out the window,
They sneak up and pour water on my head,
When I join them during games, they say the teams are already made”
“I can understand, who would want a loser like me,
I struggle through the exams, I study terribly,
None of the teachers know me, None of my friends care about me,
I’m so small, it’s obvious I’m nobody”
“I can see you”, he said kindly,
“You’re more than what others see in you,
You started playing badminton, soon you’ll be amazing at it,
I see your potential, don’t let the present define you”
“If you can see me, then did you see,
When I stammered, during the assemble speech,
Did you hear the snivels immediately after,
Did you hear them mimic my voice,
And mock my tears?”
“Yes, I did”, He said softly. “Yes, I did.”
“But I am sure, if you had presented your paintings,
You would have received a stunned silence,
You should give yourself more credit than you do.”
“Do you really think so?”, he said softly,
Yes, I do” came the prompt answer,
“There are some truths we get to choose,
And our lives are ours to define.”
“Someday, I will publish my paintings”
Yes, you should.”, came the kind encouragement,
And he snuggled more tightly under the quilt,
Perhaps the next dream would be a little bit sunnier,
At school, they would laugh, when they saw him mumble to himself,
But they didn’t realize, that even their closest friends couldn’t compare,
Because you can be your own worst enemy,
But you can also be your own greatest friend…
