My Second Life – a Poem
I was sent this brilliant poem by Keira-Joan Alexander from Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in London, inspired by Emma’s character in My Second Life. I think it’s just brilliant so wanted to share it here. A huge thank you to Keira-Joan for agreeing that I can put it up on the website.
My life at first was full of fun
Nothing to ruin it could be done
Then my life turned around
When Catherine’s heart didn’t pound
Then we found Catherine dead
We all felt empty I cried and wept
Then she shouted I killed her
Was I really a murderer?
Only if she was still alive
I could avoid this awful fight
But still at the end of the night
It was the guilt that took my life.
By Keira-Joan Alexander
