Riley Bo Russell, competition winner

 

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.
