Writing Competition Winners – Unicorn123

Writing Competition Winners – Unicorn123

In Autumn 2019 we held a writing competition for adopted young people on the theme This Is Me. We had some wonderful entries that were judged by our team and Miles Chambers, Bristol’s first poet laureate. Over the coming few weeks, we will be publishing the winners so do watch this space and read them all.


This is me

“I am always changing

Into someone

Sometimes I am angry

And I want to control

Like an erupting volcano. I am raging.

Sometimes I am helpful.

And I want to be nice

Like happy colourful rainbow. I am smiling.

Sometimes I am in my own world

I was born with my mum and dad.

I wish it was that world.

I am adopted.

And that doesn’t change.

That feels good today

But sometimes it doesn’t.

Sometimes I am safe

I want to cuddle my family

Like a big warm love heart

Or a fluffy pink cloud

Sometimes I am hateful

And I want to stamp

Like a charging rhinoceros

I am loved

I am loving

I am me.”
