Lessons From The Same Voice

“Touching Spirit Bear” by Ben Mikaelsen

A poem about the banished boy and white polar bear

By Hamza Khan (11 yrs)

I wonder if i will be visible to the spirit bear again

I hear the baby birds singing in the nest above me

I see the beautiful nature surrounding  me

I want my words to be believed and to be true

I am aggressive and broke inside

I pretend to dance like the animals I believe to look at

I feel changed with the nature and beauty around me

I touch the spirit bears white coat and throw it away to show trust

I worry if I could be forgiven by Peter and myself

I cry to the damage the mauling has done

I am aggressive and broke inside

I understand I need to be punished for what I have done

I say “I am truly sorry” to Peter and myself

I try to control my anger

I dream about coming home into safeties lap

I hope to change and be sorry

I am aggressive and broke inside
