Winner of the PGS Leonardo Poetry Competition 2015

Abid Ali, Year 7, is the winner of the 2015 Leonardo Poetry Competition.



Greed is the main priority in life
And it would be completely foolish to say:
“We should help bring peace to the world”
“We should help one another”
“We should give to charity”.
In order to better ourselves,
Greed should continue in all of us.
An unwise person would only say
There is humanity in all of us.
For everyone, however,
Selfishness is
What we are full of,
Hope is
Not an option,
Giving up is
What we do,
Helping one another is
Insignificant.
None of us are
To tell the truth,
And this will be our future unless we turn it around.
