My Eyes Were Closed

Chaos, carnage and destruction
Disappointment, pain and sickness
Hate, peace and war
I give you life
Tears coming down my face
Lost fighting, hotter and hotter
Dying inside
Popping out of existence
I open my mind to
A thousand beautifully sun-lit days
And soft voices


Lewis submitted these lines as part of a workshop with the Early Intervention Team for young people in the Slough area. He is also a visual artist and combined these lines with some of his artwork.
