To a Young Writer

by Kath Middleton
Originally published by on 08/05/2015

If you're aware that Kipling was an author

While all your friends are contemplating cake;

If all around are mesmerised by gameshows

While you've a thirst no game or app can slake

Never apologise for being different,

For knowing the world is not the way it seems.

We're never short of people making money

But how we need those seekers after dreams.

If you can let your raw imagination

Gallop away unbridled, hectic, wild,

Then you can enter worlds nobody's dreamt of

And, which is more, you'll be a person, child.

Apologies to Mr Kipling who bakes exceedingly good stories
