The winner of our 2015 ‘Identity‘ poetry competition was Riley Bo Russell with her entry entitled ‘My Story‘ –
I’m a girl aged eleven,
Here I am, in year seven.
I am a story, waiting to be told.
Just watch my identity unfold
I am a song, yet to be sung.
I am a race, still to be run.
I am a voice, yet to be heard.
I am a passion, still to be stirred.
I will express my views though the arts,
Creating rhythms and thriving hearts.
Culture surrounds me,
Music defines me.
I am a flag not yet unfurled.
I am a girl still to wonder the world.
I don’t know what I’ll become,
For the future has not yet begun.
I am a story,
Waiting to be told.
Who knows how life will unfold.
I am in year seven,
Just a girl of eleven.
