Amygdala – an acrostic poem inspired by Karen Young’s Hey Warrior

A very important part of the brain

Messenger for your body if there is danger

Your inner warrior

Gets your body ready to fight or flee

Defence system

Almost in the centre of your brain

Lots of different people are effected by the anxiety the amygdala causes

Always working to keep you safe

By Erin, age 12
