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
nobody is afraid of the dark
there is the favorite
of everyone

Chanya Pepper (@Age 5)

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 ^~^

A Dream I Had


I had a dream a night ago
In which my eyes
were the ocean, aglow
and if you looked as deep as you dare
you could have seen fish
swimming in there

Soon comes an old octopus
mean and cruel
I feel it has a dark purpose
And then he spills his ink out
letting it swirl about

He wanders all around
injecting black thoughts into me
I don’t now feel safe and sound.

This black beast needs to leave
I decide to find all the good thoughts
and with a gigantic heave
I toss them through him in a blast of light

He is gone.

So I close my eyes...



Why? Why? - A Poem by Chanya Pepper

By Chanya Pepper

Clink! Clink!
Sounds the chain
That binds us down
To the power of our leaders.

Stomp! Stomp!
Pounds the foot
That makes the bread
For the wealthy.

Cry! Cry!
Goes the baby
Wanting it’s father
Who died in the army.

Move! Move!
Cries the soldier
Who will never see his wife again.

Goes the church
Taking more than its worth.

Why? Why?
Says I
Do they ignore the people?
And their feelings?

Sad! Sad!
Says mother earth to herself
As the sun goes down.

10 Wishes - A Poem by Chanya Pepper

By Chanya Pepper

If I could have 10 wishes
I would wish for
No poverty
No sickness
No slave labour
No pollution
No hunger
No thirst
No work
No evil
No sadness
No revenge
See what a good boy I am?

The next day the boy finds a Genie
“You have 10 wishes! Use them well”, the Genie said.
I wish for
A motorbike
That spider man action figure
An X-box
A movie theatre in my room
1,000,000 sweets
X-ray glasses
A Darth Vader sword
A remote controlled airplane
A new pair of roller skates!

“So let it be”, says the Genie.

And the boy got those things and grew out of them
And went bankrupt. Now the boy is old and you can see him,
walking on the streets, begging for money.
