Year 7 English

This highly emotive and powerful WW2 poem was written by a Year 7 student Gabija in her free time.

My poem:

Another alarming war was declared.

Houses were full of sorrow.

Dad had limped through the door.

A mother and her daughter were out of sight

Ominous, ear- splitting screams filled my head; fear lingered

Ear- piercing, hawk like planes flew overhead

Cities were demolished by forceful grenades

Intoxicated bombs were dropped on innocent homes, panic!

Hair-raising bombs were hurtling down by enemies

My pure lungs corrupted by intoxicated, treacherous poison

Bodies were scattered across the crimson coloured grass.

Treacherous bullets ripped through my weak flesh

My aching legs gave up and my body surrounded: death


War finished!

Family members waited, waited, and waited for dad to come home

Tears rolled down their distressed faces.
