Your lighthouse has been switched off,

But not by you,

By a stranger,

One who once swore to take care of your lighthouse,

So you gave him the key,

You let him in,

You let him stay,

But he cluttered the place,

He filled it with all things him,

He became distracted,

And careless,

So he forgot what the lighthouse was for,

He stopped being the light to guide you home,

So one stormy night,

You never returned,

And he became concerned,

Started flashing the lights,

But what use is flashing for a ship that’s not there?

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.
