Inspiring young people
Following Sue’s recent visit to Nexus at Camborne Science and International Academy, CSGRT received an email containing a fantastic poem written by one of their Year 8 students, Evie.
We think it is very inspiring and thought provoking!
Please do read right to the bottom!
The only way is up
Our marine life is a failure
And nobody will ever say that
We can make a difference
Wrong. The truth is
Our generation has messed it up and destroyed everything
We actually succeeded
We can’t change what mistakes our ancestors have created
Only about money and power
It is not
Worth saving our oceans
Drilled into our minds
Animals are dying from pollution and it has been
Not worth the commotion
And don’t ever think that it is
Peaceful in this world
Filled with anger and hatred
Imagining seals with rope around their throats
I certainly will be
Driving a car
In the future I won’t be
Reducing, reusing and recycling
The only way to be happy is by
This world is an evil place
You will never in a million years hear me say
Our marine life is NOT a failure
So it all sound rather downbeat…until you follow Evie’s instructions.
Evie says…”Now read from bottom to top”
It is the same story just with different perspectives. What will your outlook be?
Well done Evie we are proud of what you have written – there is always more than one side to every story!
Thank you Evie for sharing your creative thoughts with us all and thank you to your teachers Jade and Jo for giving us an opportunity to meet you all.
