    It is hard sometimes to keep a positive mind
    It is hard to keep faith from time to time
    But this is what I will do because it is important
    To keep a positive mind, and Faith alive, it is how
    Our ancient survives.

    I know you say I have a child mind, because most
    Of my thoughts are innocent.
    That is the way I want To be...
    because it keep me focus.

    I still dream in hope to achieve
    There is so much I want to learn still
    Never mind what my age is. I want to
    To learn And share my new skill.

    I have trouble fitting in… because of my way of thinking.
    No matter how wicket another may be,
    we are Still Godchildren.

    Just because you knocked me down I get back
    Up smiling.
    I smile ...because from you knocking me
    Down I learned to get up fighting

    I treat people like I would like to be treated,
    Even if they don’t treat me that way.
    I respect all life, and the life around,
    And I care in a deep can of way.

    Peace
