This poem was written for and performed by 14 year old Lucy Kilduff at our Winter Overspill event at The Burnside Centre, Langely on 26th February 2020.

A GOOD COMMUNITY

A good community is somewhere everyone can share
It’s a place where people show they care
It’s a place where people go with the flow
Where we all help each other learn and grow

Its where people work and live
Where people don’t just take but they give
It’s a place where everywhere i go
There’s caring faces that i love and know

Every person is always treated equal
Prejudice behaviour may as well be illegal
We respect and support different cultures
We never act as though we are sick or vultures

We all support each other that’s what my community is about
And we would do anything to help each other disinterested in the amount

We appreciate the old and welcome the new
A good community

A good community is somewhere everyone can share
It’s a place where people show they care
It’s a place where people go with the flow
Where we all help each other learn and grow

Its where people work and live
Where people don’t just take but they give
It’s a place where everywhere i go
There’s caring faces that i love and know

Every person is always treated equal
Prejudice behaviour may as well be illegal
We respect and support different cultures
We never act as though we are sick or vultures

We all support each other that’s what my community is about
And we would do anything to help each other disinterested in the amount

We appreciate the old and welcome the new
We’re there for each other when we are feeling blue.
Together we are all a good team
And with each others help we gleam

I help my community every single day
will you help as well , what do you say?
A community listens to every single person that’s what they do
And for listening to me i’d like to say thankyou
