The little girl with the ginger curls.
An astronaut, a fairy, I could be anything in the world.
A teacher, a singer, my aspirations were high,
These are the dreams that will never die.
I could sit and play for hours on end,
By myself, with my family or one of my friends.
I’d go roller-skating in the park,
Stay awake until dark,
It seemed that nothing would ever dull my spark.
I was a star dancing in the night sky,
Most of the time I would sing the hours by.
Mum always reminded me I was the loudest in our home,
I guess that’s why when I left she felt so very alone.
When Anorexia came along, it took away my spark.
I was looking for an escape but I was trapped in the dark,
It was a vicious cycle; again and again
I used to pray for this nightmare to come to an end.
It’s like I forgot how to steer,
My destination was unclear but.. I survived
I’m still here.
16 years of my life have gone by and yes,
My aspirations are still just as high.
The sun is shining, I feel alive and that’s because
Lucy wrote this poem for English but wanted to share it with you all along with a reminder to keep going and fighting ❤
I hope everyone’s doing fab and remembering that you’re all perfectly imperfect 🙂 More posts are on the way I swear!
Love and hugs,
