‘Advice to my younger self’ – by Ruby Cameron, KS3 student

I love you,

A small innocent girl,

Her head of sunshine.

Be strong,

I beg of you,

You’ll know what I mean.

Don’t let anyone bring shade,

Over the sunrays.

Shining. Her knowing eyes.

My eyes.

A grey black

Once vibrant yellow.


Enjoy the time you have.

It’ll be stolen.

Tick. Tock.

Like a dancing pixie,

Her heart sings.

Happy for myself,

Her love,

Her joy.

She’s happy for me.

Loved, lost,

Forgotten, forgiven.

I love you.

I love who I am.

Was. Always a frail heart,

Now a strong mind.
