YOUNG POET FEATURE - BEN ELLIOTT


BEN ELLIOTT - UNITED KINGDOM - AGE 10


“Hello. My name is Ben Elliott and I live in North Yorkshire, UK. I like doing poetry because it is like a jigsaw puzzle and sometimes you can find the words, but it is hard to like… put them together, and then it’s like when you do find the right words… I enjoy the puzzle of putting them together. The challenge.”


Boring and Empty

The old abandoned buildings

Dark,

Dusty,

Old,

Tall, towering buildings


Boring and Empty

The dirty, dark buildings

Deserted,

Destroyed,

Demolished,

A lonely, broken city


__________


on a cold, dark night

powerful waves crash on boats

people get soaked

terrified they seek refuge

from the rushing destruction
