THE STORY OF LUCY

.

BY HATTER

.

Who are you ?

My name is Lucy

Why are you here ?

To say thank you

For what ?

For saving my life

 

I was called names at school

Names that didn’t belong to me

Names that burned

Names that hurt

Branded names

I had it with names

I wrapped myself in a warm brown blanket

Looked at myself in the mirror

Felt so calm

My brown blanket

Soaked to burn

Me and my names

To go up in flames

They

Burned me

When mum called

I opened the door

I replied … I’m ok

See you later

Then my sister called

Called me names

The ones that burn

I fell to the floor

Wrapped in my brown blanket

Crying out why

My sister just laughed

Why not ?

Then you appeared

Above my head

Said lets talk

So we sat and talked

And talked and talked

Inside my room

Which was my tomb

You listened

We both had tears

Streaming down our cheeks

You said you were called all those names

Those names they called me

The ones that burn

You said to have no fear

Lifted me up

Made me smile

Names are not me

Made me realise

I have one name

I am the light

That does not burn

And I keep it always in my heart

Lucy is my name

And my hearts aflame
