The child has a teardrop

in her eye.

She doesn't want to

say goodbye.

So, again she cries,

and it's sad,

because she thinks that

she was bad.

          I am actually grateful for my conditions,for they made me who I am today,and such a strong woman.there is a shining SON in every dark moment we experience.🕊😁💞

          I'm far from grateful for all my issues but i will say they've made me stronger than what I probably would have been otherwise.
