Kingsmead Eyes Speak Led by Gideon Mendel



I am ten years old. I have one sister and two brothers. I am part of a twin however I was born ten minutes before him. My Dad was born in India but my Mum was born here in England. I live in Hackney with my family. I love to cook with my Mum because we both share an interest in food. My favourite thing to do is going to my cousin’s house to play.

Shadow on the window
History unfolding..

Ghost’s Shadows

Shadow on the window
History unfolding
Like an old film reel repeating and rolling
Projections of the past shine right through him
Ghosts gather round and whisper to him
Of the days
They walked free
The proud ancestors that are his family
They guide him through future choices
Running through his veins
He feels their love
These shadows on the window
That are in history’s blood
