Shy child, mentally and emotionally abused
No confidence, scared to be smart
Public talk as a teen gave her self-worth!

Fourteen year old took a hammer to bed
When father came she fought him off
Took a decade but she worked up the courage!

So many broken bones and hospital admissions
Remote rural farm with no way out
Sedated his tea so he slept off the grog!

Life had been a constant struggle
But practiced so hard for the opportunity
Then showcased her talent and won so many hearts!

Creative Question 6:  Write about a moment of courage when you stood up for yourself?

Idea arises from a players workshop written up by the ABC News, NT
NB These are other people’s stories!
