    Just wrote this, and im not used to writing haikus, but i thought id share it anyway...

    I hold my head high

    I hold my head high
    There is no time left for me
    To sit down and cry

    I hold my head high
    My God gave me a purpose
    So now I must try…

    to hold my head high
    Despite all the tragedies
    That have plagued my mind…

    I’ll hold my head high
    So there will be room for me
    to spread wings and fly….

    determination
    to cut through the difficult
    is not just a dream

    it takes the wisdom
    beyond the reality
    to see all the path.

    Keep your head to sky
    Because Chicken Little lie
