On my way home…
I met a boy called Bravery,
He wore a fur coat made from bear skin that covered his small shoulders and flopped down to drag on the ground like a cape.
Both of his knees were grazed.
He had a sling hugging his broken arm but a loving smile still marked his face.
I met a girl called Justice,
She wore a yellow and white striped T-shirt covered by tatty dungerise.
She carried a bin bag full of rubbish that she collected from the street.
She danced and sang words of wisdom to the tune of a happy song,
spreading contagious happiness.
I met a quiet girl called Patients,
She wore a small blue checkered Pinafore dress with large thick glasses.
She had long blonde hair that flowed to her knees.
She carried a book with her all the time, always in pristine condition.
Some say she is waiting for the time to shine.
