Holly Second in Young Writers Competition

Holly Second in Young Writers Competition

Holly-Battell (Copy)Congratulations to Holly Battell for her achievement of second prize in the Young Writers Competition in the 13-15 year category.

The Young Writers Competition takes place every year as part of the Knysna Literary Festival and aims to inspire the youth to write. All poems submitted are judged on creativity, technical excellence and respect for the theme.

The theme for the Age Group 13-15 years was Cycle of Life, and Holly managed to capture this perfectly in her beautiful poem below:

The Cycle of Life

By Holly Battell

Once we were small, innocent

But time came

Changing us, growing us

We then went to school

Learning, hearing

But time clicked his fingers

Showing us, growing us

We then had a job

Planning, creating

But time swished his clock

Helping us, growing us

We then had a family

Teaching, enjoying

But time can break your clock

Stopping your time in this world
