Longlisted Poem 2014

Angela Hulbert

Anglo European School, Essex

Answered Questions

Because she is the girl who always questioned
This letter sits before her
And tonight change can happen

This life she thought she lived was not
Like a dream, a change of heart
A beautiful life, it reminds her

Of her family, being the
mystery, the words sink in, adopted,
Now she’s the one who doesn’t belong

Because she was the girl who always questioned
She always wondered if,
Tonight change didn’t happen

The earth still moves, her heart still beats
‘mum’ smiles, puppy at her feet,
Seasons change, gravity pulls, babies born

into the world, her eyes stare up
at the lady, mother, friend who isn’t
and quietly whispers, I love you
