YWP: Maeve MacAuley and Kayden Brochu

Morning Haiku

By Maeve MacAuley — age 16, Colchester

The morning sunrise,

feel sun drip into our eyes,

now we ought to rise.


By Kayden Brochu — age 16, Colchester

I don't know anymore.

So much has happened,




People have changed,

something I thought was impossible,


A new life began –

a virus, of course.

We all know of it.

So many lives have ended,

whether by the virus

or less natural means.

I just miss the simple days,

when school was the most stressful thing

and I only had to worry about my friends


It can't be helped.

But I do wonder, though:

Will our generation end up stronger,

or will we be weaker

than our predecessors?
