Light in The Dark
written by: Breanna Hobbs-Dunning
It’s the darkness I feel when I’m dismal.
For every tear I shed, you take a piece of light.
In the dark I feel alone.
In the dark I believe is my home.
Not a home for one to love but a home for one to keep.
For not everyone believes their life is worth light.
Before I say goodbye and let the dark win this fight.
I want you to know, that you were my light.
Breanna Hobbs-Dunning is a sixteen year old girl, who was originally born in Darwin, but is now living in Murray Bridge, SA. She attends year 11 at Murray Bridge High School. Breanna first took an interest in poems when she was at the age of fourteen, during one of her English classes. But she continues to write poems outside of school because it is a way to help her express her feelings and words she cannot speak out loud. Writing poems helped her more than the therapists and the doctors she seen did, because Breanna felt safer and more comfortable to open up about her own thoughts, feelings and found it easier putting the words onto her phone in notes.
