As we take forward our memories
we leave behind a whole year
of mixed emotions, at least for me.
Climate change, political crisis,
we learnt so much with so many surprises
even COVID-19 taught us things
we wouldn’t have learnt otherwise.
After having days of happiness
and days of despair
we can finally welcome 2021 with open arms
and we can finally breathe some fresh air.
After having days of loneliness
and days of enjoyment with our families
we can smile
and hope for less calamities.
After 366 long days
where we had online learning for most of it
we can only hope for 2021 to serve us better
we can only hope 2021 does not let us quit.
Even though they may be a lot of ‘what ifs’
we have no choice but to march forward with joy or fear
to everyone, everywhere,
I hope you have a very happy new year.
Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
