My daughter was given an assignment in her fifth grade class to write a poem about herself. I am really proud of what she wrote.
I am emotional and tender-hearted
I wonder how God became
I hear the sound of fighting that should be stopped
I see beauty in life
I want the world to have peace
I pretend nothing bad is happening somewhere
I feel innocent
I touch someone with kindness
I worry about what will happen to the world
I cry when people can’t get along
I understand that you just need to let it out sometimes
I say, “I love you.”
I dream of God being present
I try not to argue
I hope that everyone will listen
I am Keely Dae Yeager

This is precious . . .brought tears to my eyes. Please give her a hug from me! And thank you for sharing it here!
Thanks Debbie. I will pass that along to Keely, including the hug.
I just gave a speech on war and so Keely’s expression of her emotion about our world fits right in with how my Toastmaster group responded. I love that she gives her heart away with the words of the poem. It is refreshingly honest and lovely at the same time.
Thank you Karen.
She has a very open and honest way about her when she writes. I will pass your thoughts along to her.
This is beautiful, Chris! This is just how Jesus wants us to be.

Keely is very grateful for all of the wonderful comments. She wanted me to thank everyone for the encouragement and compliments.
Thanks. I will let Keely know.
Keely, you have a wonderful way of seeing yourself!
