Poems for Peace Competition: read Tuan Nguyen's Highly Commended poem.


I have a dream about my family:
where I have happiness
and peaceful tranquillity;
where I can come back whenever I want;
where love can’t be counted;
where smiles can’t be forgotten;
where tears are always remembered;
where I can rest when I’m tired;
where wishes are completed;
where someone wakes me up every day;
where I have advice in my life;
where my mum is a pink candle;
my dad is a green candle;
where I am a yellow candle;
where three candles are happiness in a home.
