It was about cowardice as opposed to too much sun (in 1990s Boro? Ha!) and I do have a copy of it in a published book at my parents house but I wish I had if here too so I could read it.
I'll be honest, it wasn't a cheery poem but it was an authentic poem and I believe pretty good. When I thought I could be a poet (thanks to Simon Armitage), before I realised I had no idea how to be a poet.
I wrote this one recently; I'm pretty proud of it.....
Our youth has gone
And so has your beauty
Something that used to mean
So much to me
But still, no poet. But a writer, yes.
