She hates winter
Says her small collection of worn our flip flops.
She has long thick hair
Says the broken hair ties all over her bathroom.
She loves drawing
Says her book of sketches.
Her family is in poverty
Says the jar with very little money.
Her brother is in the army
Says the shattered family portrait without his smiling face.
They have very little food
Says the half empty pantry.
But she is grateful for what she has
Says her small book of personal thoughts.
She still has that smiling face
Says her childhood writings on the walls of her room.
She still hopes
For a different and new day to come.
