I struggle to see all my classes, A headache occurs, then passes, A pain in my head, A feeling I dread I think I really need glasses by Mr Ahmad


Sunlight, like stabbing swords pierces mine eye Mislaid visions of darkness swiftly leaving Grasping for clarity I groggily blunder Caught twix dream and reality Torn always by one or t'other by Mr Winter


I am white You are black What difference does it make All the lives that they take Just because you are a different race by Mahdi


Is vision how I see or how I do? Should vision energise or philosophise? I think it is the single most thing that gives existence a purpose A mission statement will be nothing if a vision is dubious by Miss Aiken
