Staring at my reflection in her shattered glass
Thank you to Amy Larsen for deciding to contribute her powerful poetry to both competition and blog. As Amy explains, she likes ‘to write poetry about struggles that people can relate to, to encourage empathy, because ultimately we all have more in common than we think.’ We appreciate Amy sharing ‘Fragments’ with us.
I judge the broken girl and hand her my hate.
Staring at my reflection in her shattered glass,
I wonder why my heart hurts,
It is not her that I hate.
Amy Larsen, 18, Buckinghamshire
