The Shadow on the water
I lazed upon the sun-scorched beach, and
Watched my tiny, freckled, laughing daughter
Splashing in the waves that washed the sand
When, there! a shadow in the deeper water …
Out of the depths, a shark swam by,
Rising from the deep of the sea.
My daughter gave a piercing cry,
Enough to startle me.
The water was cold when I dived down deep,
Sending shivers up my spine.
I saw my daughter in a mangled heap,
She was only nine…

As I swam down into the deep sea to rescue her,
There was a shark lurking there.
It had lots of brown fur,
As it left, it's remains were a pile of hair.
Then I remembered I had to save the girl,
I grasped for her and took the girl to the surface,
She was as wet as a dog in a puddle!

I scanned the dock for a helping hand,
I then realised that the threat wasn’t the shadow in the water,
But the everlasting shadow that followed my daughter.
By Joe, Dominic, Stanley and Nyle- Forest Hill Boys, Lewisham
hunting, stalking it murmered to her
it whispered her name over and over
awaiting and seeking only her answer
But she could not give a final answer
As I noticed her heart beating faster
Her face was as white as a sheet
Her eyes like daggers looking up
