Heart of Everything by Chanya Pepper (age 5)

Part of everything
Heart of everything
of everyone, everywhere
In the hearts
deep inside
there is a person
Deep inside
there is a person
sitting down there
and it is me
Deep inside my heart
there is everyone
Inside their hearts
there
nobody is afraid of the dark
there is the favorite
of everyone

This is a poem that I wrote when I was five. I didn’t write back then so I dictated it to my mum
and got it published in the Camden Herald <3

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope you are having a GREAT one ^~^
