There once was a girl,
compassionate and free,
She had a heart of gold and generosity.
She created connection,
everywhere she would go.
She inspired and encouraged others,
so they would know -
they are loved.
I can't imagine being a teacher right now,
or a kid, or an adult, or a graduate,
or a healthcare worker, or any essential worker.
I never imagined this, or that,
or going so long without a hug.
Is this a test?
stories of resilience, self-discovery and lessons in getting back up.
I love to read a good adventure -
where the characters are interesting,
the stories are amazing
and you can't put it down.
