Lemn Sissay's Challenges

Day 22 – Poem of Love


It’s Friday! And on Friday’s, everybody taking part in The January Challenge comes together to do the same challenge.

Today’s challenge comes from 18 year old Ines Yearwood-Sanchez.
Thank you Ines!

“My name is Ines Yearwood-Sanchez, I am 18 and from London. I love writing poetry and spoken word and I aspire to become a successful actress in the future. I believe that self-love is important and we sometimes forget how amazing we all are. Self-love is a continuous journey and for me, writing about my emotions through spoken word and poetry helps me to be more in touch with myself.”

Write a poem that lists the things that you like about yourself. Your poem can be long or short, rhyming or non-rhyming – anything goes!

Your poem might be written, typed, dictated or even filmed. You might like to share your poem, or you might like to keep it for yourself.

Watch Ines’ poem, or read the full transcript here.
