What a poignant poem, Victoria. Wow.So much young wisdom.
Such a sad situation for a child to see and have to think about but I know it happens too often. He knows already how his life will be better, though. That is the good thing.
Obviously children take a lot from a situation, and fortunate is a young person who can verbalize it surrounded by caring adults.
This makes me cry, so sad, so sweet, so sad.
It's odd that I didn't see the sad when Zachary made this statement at the table last night. I just saw the hope. I guess I've already mourned the sad, and been mad about it too. It helps that all people in this story continue to grow.
What a nice thought, like a daydream...
