I learned things about writing poetry. My favorite poem was when I wrote “my life is like sunlight, sometimes it is bright, sometimes darkness.” When I don’t see my mother (who is still in Africa) in my dreams, my life becomes darkness and emptiness. And when I see my mother in a dream, lightness comes and my life is like a rose flower.
 
 
My Life
 
My life is like sunlight sometimes it is bright, sometimes darkness. When I don’t see my mother in my dreams, my life becomes darkness and emptiness.
 
She was always looking to see if we were sleeping well and if we had everything we needed. Once it rained, and when we got home wet from school she didn’t want us to get sick, so she sent us to take a warm shower.
 
My mother is my dearest friend in this world. I can talk to her and trust her. I appreciate her as a very close friend. When she smiles, her teeth shine like the bright moon in the night. The color of her skin is prettier than all the diamonds and jewels in the world.
 
My hope is to help my mother a lot because she is the one who was there for me and what I believe is that no one is like your mother because she is the one who really cares about you. She is the one who knows everything you are going through and who can fell your pain. I hope my mothers keeps going.
 
My mom is the most special person in this world for me. I hope when I grow up, I can be like her so that my children will admire me too. I think it’s very important for everyone to have a person to look up to because every young person needs a little advice now and h ten, especially in this world.
 
When I see my mother in a cream, lightness comes, and my life is like a rose flower.
 
What I wish for most of all is to see my mother.
