THROUGH THE KEYHOLE
YOUTH WRITING CONTEST WINNERS

Through the Keyhole #1 by Harry W. Yeatts Jr.

THE OTHER SIDE
By Emmy J.
Winner, 13-14 year-old category

Through the keyhole
I see
A better world
A girl
Running
Through
Her new world
Away
From this
This broken
Battered
Wall
Through which
The way
To a better life
Leads

On the other side
There is grass
Greener
There are trees
Taller
There is sky
Bluer
On this side
Black
White
Broken
Chips
Of
Paint
Broken
From years
Of deprivation
Of wishing
For a better world

If only
I could get there
If only
I could make it
Through the keyhole
Into
The world
On the other side
The world
Of happiness
Of delight
Of wonder
Of unattainable
Beauty
Just over there
Through The Keyhole
