Wonders
by Keyaria, age 15, Alabama/U.S.A

There are always wonders that crosses my mind.
Will the heavens open up for me? Is it my time?
Will life ever be as peaceful as a river?
Will anything be more valuable than gold or silver?
Will anybody ever open there eyes and see the beauty of land?
Will anybody stop for a minute and try to understand?
That life is more than living,struggles and feeling under.
Life is like a flower that blossoms with wonder.
