There Once Was a Young Girl from – BOOK SELECTION by Katy Young

posted in: Poetry 2012 | 0


There once was a young girl from Wales

Who had the wind knocked from her sails

She battled with wit

Refusing to quit

And now it is her that prevails!

She uses her humour to aid

All those who are starting to fade

From sadness and woes

And all inner foes

So that they’re no longer afraid.

With good mental health she has glee

And shares it with others for free

As she fully knows

About what the lows

Can do when you feel all at sea.

You’ll know who this young Welsh girl is

It wasn’t that hard of a quiz!

And with unique style

I’ve made others smile

Though I’m not a comedy-whiz!

My new plan in life is to write

And show others how they can fight

Their illness and pain

Until they can gain

A life that is joyful and bright!

So now that my life has a goal

I am the one who’s in control!

And so as I end

I wholly intend

To always stay mentally whole!

Katy collects a handmade hardback book

She will be presented with this at the House of Lords on the 1st May 2013
