I keep this light on for you
So that you can find your way home
I don’t care what the bill comes to
I will keep this light on for you.
I will keep this light on for as long as this house stands
This light will never go out
I will always, always keep this light on for you
Please come home soon
Because this light is on for you…
This poem was originally featured in Haringey Unchained, a collective of students aiming to showcase the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form Centre in Tottenham. 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.
