Isolation Poetry Competition

Isolation Poetry Competition

Congratulation to Eulalia Terra Theodoro for winning first place in the Year 9 and 10 Isolation Poetry Competition (Term 3) which was open to Southland students years 1-10. The competition celebrated International Literacy Day, and students wrote a poem about their isolation experience from earlier in the year. 

 

Isolation

At the table, I sit

Surrounded

Yet,

Alone

I read,

I watch,

I hear

Information comes in

Suffocating me

Taking over my thoughts

“Stay in”, they say

So I stay put

Drowning in my own solitude

Nowhere to go

No escape

So I speculate,

I foresee,

I foreshadow,

I wait

At the table,

I sit

Surrounded

Yet,

Alone
