Our Friend

Our Friend by Nicholas Adamides

I have written a letter to our friend,
He depicts a new order for our dear Russia;
one that will drown her,
drown her in all thou hath ever tried to keep back.
He says the people have unleashed themselves;
whirling them into times of great horror.
Take his words as I did, my love;
he sees over the trees of the present;
and instead he finds the sky of the future.
Let him guide you through this war,
you must remember his speech is wisdom itself,
Would you deny wisdom if it offers itself,
grasp his hand as I did,
Stay safe, always remember the power of our friend.

I was born in England, 2008 and I am 12 years old. I lived in England for the first year of my life until my brother was born and we moved to Cyprus since my father is from there and my grandparents live there. W remained there for roughly two years, however, we wished to return to London where we were living prior to the move. Therefore, we promptly moved back and remained there for about a decade where we excelled in our studies.

Above all, I loved poetry and history and realized that they were a great match, so at 10-11 I started to combine the two subjects and formed historical poetry. I continue to write whenever a new historical event catches my eye. For instance, I have written about the battle of Hattin, the battle of Crecy, the St John’s knights’ stand against the Ottoman Empire and the fall of Jerusalem.
