Year 5 Ramadan Assembly

On Thursday 9th May 2019, Year 5 did a class assembly all about Ramadan, a celebration for Muslims. Being part of this, I decided to write a poem about how tough it is to cope during Ramadan. I hope you enjoy!

This is the month of Ramadan

by Holly

This is the month of Ramadan,

A time where we fast as much as we can,

From sunrise to sunset,

Unless we’re in a jet,

From dusk till dawn we must always fast,

Until all the days have passed,

Ignoring the hunger,

Trying to brush it off with slumber,

Providing food for the poor,

As they look upon us in awe,

Praying 5 times a day, maybe a little more,

Our belief in God begins to soar,

We wake up in the morning, still in a daze,

Kneel on our mats and give the Lord praise,

Saying special words, trying not to make a mistake,

We may be tired, but can’t have a break!

Have any cravings, we can’t have that,

Try to keep your temper about your friend’s new hat!

This is the month of Ramadan,

A time where we fast as much as we can.
