Rebecca’s Poetry

Is This Paradise?

Although the sun feels pleasant and a
warm breeze brushes against my face,
my feet sink into the sand
like quicksand.
I hear people talking and
waves rushing towards the shore,
like roaring lions.
I feel vulnerable in this unpredictable place.


Dark and deserted.
Bitter cold.
Limited life.
Fear of the unknown.

This Matters

Kindness is thinking about

another’s feelings.

It is treating people the way

that you would like to be treated.

When I am treated kindly,

I feel like I matter,

that I am valued.
