DofE poetry in motion

We love this beautiful poem written by Furze Platt Senior School’s Shannon Doyle for her Bronze Expedition aim – incredible!

Day One

As I walk on this journey with my four friends
We make mistakes and come across dead ends
But we learn to motivate and support each other until we finish the first leg
We see Bluebells and Forget me Nots and Buttercups on end

We walk with passion and strive with grace
Just to get through the first day
Our last leg of the day, we walk a long way
Just to get to the height of the hill and admire the environment
As we slap the bugs in our way

We walked out of the camp site and down the admiring road
Thinking about what I think I should do with my life
And the people I’m working with, I’m getting to know.

Day Two

As I walk on this journey with my four friends
I think about my life and appreciate the views around us

I’m happy I succeeded and I’m proud of my work
Especially all of my friends
They did their best and are more confident in themselves
That’s all I could wish for them

I’m hoping to do Silver and I’m excited for the journey ahead
I have more aims and goals to do well and finish
And I wish all my friends the best.
