Today is National Poetry Day, and the theme this year is vision. During the summer I was asked to write a poem for the Diana Award to celebrate the amazing visionary work that the award recipients do across the world. Princess Diana believed that ‘young people have the power to change the world’, and the recipients demonstrate that in spadesful from Faith producing thousands of blankets for people undergoing cancer treatment in Canada, to Nikhiya supplying bags, books and blessings to thousands of Indian school children, to Nik advocating for kindess and equality in the UK.
Here is the poem I wrote, and some Diana Legacy Award holders reading it. Enjoy!
