The entries

Fly Away
By Natalie, age 15,
from Kingsthorpe, Northampton

Some days I want
To grow wings
Powerful and strong and sleek
To hold my weight
To aid my flight.
And I want to be taken
By a breath of air
To some distant place
Where I can be free
To fly
To breathe.
To be who I am
Not someone people
Want me to be.
I want my wings to grow fast
From the blades of my shoulders.
So my arms are still free
To touch the tips of waves
To take flowers
From a wood
To wave goodbye
But not farewell.
I want to fly someplace
Just for a little while.
Where I can think
Free my mind and soul
To hope
To dream
To look for something
I don't know.
Then come back home
To love.
