I Remember*

I remember when I would play with all my neighbours

I remember when I would be kept awake by dad’s obnoxiously loud laughter

I remember when I passed down my precious teddy to my brother

I remember when I was learning how to play piano

I remember when I got hit by an ambulance in front of the hospital – many times

I remember the Disney princess stickers on my walls

I remember the glow in the dark stars at night

I remember laughing with my friends about their silly nanny

I remember sneaking out with my cousins

I remember the shouting and screaming downstairs

I remember the sadness and happiness of childhood

I look forward to the future

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
