Lest we Forget
The following poem was written by a Year 8 student in remembrance of the fallen.
Heal the Wound
by Izodosa Osarenmwinda
A chain of death few withstand,
Between barbed-wire in no-man’s land.
A hint of hope provokes elation;
But there’s no time for celebration.
Heal the wound hatred has formed,
Solve the problem till transformed,
Be the light in spite of darkness,
Elevate optimism; emit brightness.
A hundred years on, lost souls declare
Remember commitments, remember to care,
Life carries on as decades pass,
Poppies bloom in Flanders amongst wild grass.
