Kurlys Poetry - Fun literacy engagement workshops

Your Page!

On my visits to schools around the U.K I've met many wonderful people, some already knew they were creative and others found out during the course of a workshop. Here is a peep at some of the creativity, ranging in subject and expressive style.

If you have contributed to this page, firstly thank you for your input! I hope you enjoy seeing or listening to your work here and continue to take your creativity further!

To have your work uploaded here please speak to your teacher/parent/carer/youth worker (the person who booked my visit) and politely ask them to send it (either as an attachment or Youtube link) to: 

Try your best to type up your poem/rap neatly and correct any spelling mistakes before sending. Make sure your work is the best it can be for others to see!

Well done and keep up the great work!!

There's high, low and middle size views 
If your not careful you'll end up blowing a fuse.  
I can't imagine the beats, so fast like hearts  
But something special is so creative, Art.  
You know, that this is as high as a wall 
Which of course is extremely tall.  
Don't loose your temper no need to fear,  
I'll calm you down with a letter that starts Dear 
If I make a story that actually linked 
I'd really really have to think

Every day I see conflict

And the harm it inflicts

It causes war like Hitler

Instead of having fun like Stifler

Guns and bombs are for war

Instead we need to feed the poor

Everyday we hear about killing

I think we all need to increase on the chilling

Not chilling too much cos thats not good

Dragging down yourself by smoking bud

Turn on your T.V and listen to the news

Another day another murder up by the Blues

Some people act hard trying to be the bully

Is it because they dont understand themselves fully?

Thats why they end up turning to guns

Thinking they're big but they're really bums!

I wish people would stop and see

That with conflict we'll never be free.
