Summer Reflections 2

by Ben Bell September 23, 2014 A

All this week, each day we have some reflections on our summer at Urban Hope. They are short reflections but reflect the stories of some young people and interactions we have with them.

She says she’s without a motive, there’s nothing do round here
Ambling with her mates, she’s on every street you walk down
That’s her summer, and when it rains, she gets wet

Museums are free and galleries full of invitations to interact
The sun is high and parks are green
There is a haze of idealism in the urban summer
But she doesn’t know about this chocolate covered candy bar of opportunity
The only extra curricular she knows is music on her phone, smoking fags on benches and walls.
