Poem, by Sydney Ann Achieng

The following poem was written as part of a poetry-writing event at Spurgeons Academy, to mark World Poetry Day

When I wake up in the morning

I feel not to go to church

My mother tells me to go because church is the House of God

When I go to church I find the priest praying

I remember the bad things that have happened to me

I start crying and ask God to forgive me

I’m now aware

That God is the source of everything

I will live to praise my God
