Take Care, Take Care

Write On! Poetry Prize Honorable Mention, ages 12 & Under

by Anika Johnson

I am offering this garden to you,
Since I have nothing else to give,
Keep it like a power
When you need it the most
The snow can never bite through,

Take care, take care

I have nothing else to give
So use it like a pot full of gold,
It’s your super power
Use it well when you need it

Take care, take care

Keep it like a treasure
Grow your feelings
Grow your love and joy
Burn off the fire and anger
Have it like a power

Take care, take care
