'Fearing Feelings', 'Places'

Two more poems from the recent Junior Poetry Prize competition, this time by Olivia Plunket:

Fearing Feelings

Rivers of tears,

Forests of thoughts,

The ocean is our mind

Forever crashing and changing;

Mountains of fears,

Lakes of sorrow;

These places are our feelings,

They contain our memories

And long lost moments.

We go to these places

To remind ourselves

How we used to love.


Let’s start the journey,

Take ourselves everywhere, anywhere,

Run as far as we can see,

Swim until we can no longer feel,

And learn to fly, to reach the stars.

We'll go places, and we'll find places,

New or old,

Far or near,

So let’s begin the journey we never started,
