Now you see me.
Congratulations to participant Isabel Plummer whose poem 'Now You See Me' won first prize in the poetry section of the 2023 RDA UK Creative Writing Competition:
But they are totally unaware,
That there's much more to me,
Than just my Wheelchair.
For 30 minutes,
I swap wheels for hooves,
To lift and carry, and help me move,
A mane and tail with fur so soft,
Soaks up my tears,
When I'm feeling lost.
My thoughts and worries fade away,
The warmth of my horse
Keeping my troubles at bay.
The view from up high is like nothing I know,
With every step I feel my confidence grow,
I always feel small,
looked down upon, unheard,
Ignoring these feelings, is something I haven't yet learnt
