What Do I Value Most In My Life?

By Jade, age 14


I Feel:

Passionate, daring, wild

I am:

Loving sister to Mike

I love:

Freedom, hearty laughter, rain

Iím touched by:

Compassion, a babyís trusting face

I couldnít live without:

Music, the untamed sea, red roses,

Nature, my supportive family

I Value:

Acceptance, forgiveness, honesty

I have:

Bitterness, tears, cruel deaths

I wish I had:

Grace of a ballerina, eyes of a poet,

Hands of a doctor

I dream about:

Female American president, equality,

Smiles not tainted by hate

This is me!
