We are built gray today.
Gray as the night sky.
Many hard times face your dreams.
But keep moving forward, don’t let your spirit down.
Times may face you when you want to give up.
You feel like you’re in a cell.
But keep your spirit high, never let it down.
Move ahead, accomplish, your dreams come true.
You may be the loneliest person, but keep your spirit high.
For a journey, climb the highest mountain.
Go till the edge.
Listen for birds at sunset.
At your hardest times, nature will guide you.
Start your dream that you want.
Open yourself wide to earth.
By Atticus, 2nd grade
