I have got my Super Powers
Please listen to Ali Knowles, creator of the Ollie Model and author of the Ollie and his Super Powers series of books reading a poem written by one of her young client's while in hospital, waiting for surgery.
At night its worst,
I’m all alone,
I want my mum to take me home,
I’m scared about my operation.
I’m scared it won’t work ,
And I won’t get to join the older generation.
I’m scared I might not ever walk,
I’m scared I might not be able to see hear or talk.
I’m scared I might not wake up when it’s done,
I’m scared I might never see my mum ….again..
But when last night got really bad,
I did what you said to not go mad,
I went to my library,
And found my super powers,
They showed me memories of my happy hours.
They told me to sleep it will be ok ,
And I know that they are all with me today.
Brave and strong are next to me, They will help me fight to walk talk and see.
I told the nurse about your books so she won’t worry either
No more sad looks.
I’m going to member the rhyme we made up .
When I get scared and feel alone,
I go to my library and remember home.
I laugh and play and hug mum for hours,
Because I have got my super powers." Anon
