2020 Premier League Writing Stars winner: Unstoppable

24 Jun 2020

Read the inspirational poem from 10-year-old Jonathan from Engayne Primary School that won the Key Stage 2 prize

The 2020 Premier League Writing Stars Key Stage 2 prize went to Jonathan, 10, from Engayne Primary School in London for his poem, "Unstoppable".

It focuses on a person who refuses to be denied as they pursue their goals.


They punched me down
Laughed at me, mocked me
Thought I didn't shine
Thought I couldn’t be

But I couldn’t believe them
And I didn’t believe them
Because I was unstoppable
They ground me down

Teased me, didn’t care about me
Left me in the alley
No-one to talk to, I was unhappy. 

But I couldn’t believe them
And I didn’t believe them
Because I was unstoppable

Now I’ll show them
What I can do
What they don’t know
About me, their foe

I've shown them
I’ve blown them away
Into the dusty day
Because I never stopped

And I won't
And I can't
Because I am unstoppable
