Bright and bold
The highlight of my day
In every single way
A master of connection
Sure fire bet for any election
Life of the party
The laughter hearty
Uprooting all fear
No regards for regret
No cause for you to fret
In hers my soul confides
In hers my peace resides...

Breathing, gasping, laughing, then with a final burst it was done. The hours of pain were done. She cried with the relief of it. I bent down, touched my forehead to hers. She smelled of sweat and st...
Don’t feel bad about guilt weary one,
Sigh only when you need time.
Our thoughts do leave us alone
And do our mind a crime.
Do not overthink little one,
Air your fears like rain.
Our cares are more than fun

Your tears will come less and less,
Reaching high into the skies

At school, she admires the gold star at the top of her English paper. ‘I deserve this,’ she thinks.
