Please see below some of the fantastic work produced by our learners on National Poetry Day, along with the winner of our BHM competition.
The Vision of a Paramedic
Flying down the streets
Constantly receiving information about the patient we’re going to treat.
Hopefully we can get to them in time.
With blue lights flashing,
And the cars hopefully not crashing
Each call is a race against time.
Cries of help come in all day
And of course we do our best to save the day
But it’s not always possible.
Even though we use the defibrillator
And the blood pressure measurer
We can’t save them all.
But sometimes it doesn’t take that
As some people just need a chat,
A chat to express their feelings
Which will begin the process to healing
There is more than one way to save a life
Flashbacks of previous callouts.
Can cause multiple fallouts,
F times when we were unsuccessful
In saving the innocent lives
Sometimes it gets hard
But it helps to have my partner by my side.
We do our best everyday,
Trying to keep you living for another day.
They’ve been covered in human fluids
But some people intentionally do it.
Why should they help us when many don’t give them
The respect that they ultimately deserve?

V- Vision is something you
I- Imagine. Vision is something you can
I- I can see myself going places
O- Over the mountains, over the sea and if I stick to what I want to be
N- Nothing can stop me.
