This is the Year

Poetry Anthology


Highly Commended:
This Year
by Aaliyah Weekes

Dear people of 2050, 


This year was not so great, there was a virus worldwide 

This year the government said how many people died not survived  

This year we couldn't see family  

This year my friends couldn't hang with me  

This year the hospitals were full of sick people 

This year felt like climbing a steep hill  

This year everyone went into panic 

This year happiness started to vanish  

This year we had to stay inside 

This year everyone's brains were fried 

This year i made it out alive  

And next year my smile will be so wide  


From Aaliyah Weekes
