This poem was an entry in Epilepsy Today's first-ever festive poetry contest: Outside the lines.
Exciting and creative wherever I go.
Learning quick and helping my mum during a seizure.
Loving and friendly, helping my friends to be confident.
And being a responsible person and own up to things.
Songs singing sweetly,
Noisy children screaming as they play,
Overfilling with snow,
Wearing warm clothes,
Feeling like a tornado when the wind is blowing in your face,
Laughter and joy in the Christmas air,
Awaking when it is Christmas Day,
Keeping under the fire,
Evening feels like morning.
