This poem was created as part of the young people’s conference, in June 2018.

Young Person (YP): We are Friends

Independent Visitor (IV): Sometimes

YP: We also communicate
IV: Sometimes
YP: We like each other
IV: Sometimes
YP: We help each other
IV: Majority of the time
YP: We get on each other’s nerves
IV: *NOD*
YP: And we are there for each other
IV: When I arrive on time!
YP: Compatible
IV: Reactable
YP: I get to choose the food
IV: I HOPE SHES IN A GOOD MOOD
YP: I get to choose the drinks
IV: SO she thinks!
YP: And I get to choose where we go:
YP+IV: On a journey together we grow

YP (Female, aged 11) and IV (Female)
