This is the place where the lost people go

Lost People


There is a place a million miles from here,
Where there is nothing like hate or like fear,
There are no cars, no planes, no not here,
Nobody shouts so it’s safer for your ears,
Nothing is loud, just quiet and low,
This is the place where the lost people go,
It’s not a myth as I hope you can see,
I wish one of the lost people was me,
I wish one of the lost people was me.

Mori Leadbetter, Aged 8
