The World Through My Eyes

Written By Ayanna Raj (Grade 9)

I put on my rose tinted glasses and I see,
What I think the world is meant to be.

Bright green leaves everywhere,
I can smell the fresh, non polluted air.

Everyone is caring and kind,
No one is ever left behind.

There is love and kindness in everyone,
And friendships that shine brighter than the sun.

Nature is flourishing and the Earth is healthy,
There is no poverty and everyone is wealthy.

The Ozone doesn’t have a hole, the ice caps aren’t melting,
The seas are clean, and climate change is not a thing.

Animals aren’t dying, Humans are safe,
The world is a secure place.

There are no unjust politics, there is no black money,
There is no crime, there is no robbery.

There is no discrimination of gender or race,
The colour of your skin can’t bring you disgrace.

I take off my glasses and don’t like what I see,
I guess the world is not what I think it is meant to be.

Hi, I'm 17 years old. I love writing poetry, both for entertainment and as a way to get out how I'm feeling in words. I write about everything around me.


My Safe Space

As I feel the warmth of the sun fall on my face,
I open my eyes, and squint through the bright rays.
Gazing ahead at the beach...

Silent Past

In shadows of the past, I feel so lost,
Was once a happy kid, now all tossed.
Circumstances cruel, changed my way...

The Perfect Life

A life without tension & worry, A life where there is no need to hurry, A life where you can have all...
