HEROES: KS5 Winner
Charlotte in Year 13 wins for this moving poem in honour of her aunt who sadly passed away in January. Charlotte said: My aunt was a big part of my life and she helped shape me to become the person that I am today. She was a gardener so I represented her with a flower. I will always link the two together. She showed me kindness and compassion. She would go out of her way to help others and has inspired me to become a nurse.
A blossoming flower
bobbing in the breeze
pointing me towards the light
leading me along my path.
You were my sunlight for so long
but I am past you now and must carry on.
Though I cannot take you with me
I will remember you by the image
of a blooming flower imprinted in my mind.
And one day in the future our paths may cross again.
But until that day comes I remember you with a smile.
