Life then, today, tomorrow

by Ronda, age 15

Life then was scary, today
great, tomorrow will be perfect with
mom and dad by my side.

Life then was a burden, today
a blessing, tomorrow calm with
mom and dad teaching me!

Life then was chaotic, today
thought out, tomorrow calm with
mom and dad teaching me!

With mom and dad
by my side
life tomorrow will be better
than today
and never like life then!

Ronda received $15 for having her poem published.
