"Too Big For a Little Kid"

Antonia Middle School
Jefferson County, MO

The world is so big.
Too big for a little kid.
This little kid doesn’t always feel like he belongs.
But when he does feel welcomed or like he belongs, he is full of joy.
Those days he loves with all of his heart.
He wishes that they could last forever.
Those days seldom come in this big world.
That a small kid tries to survive in.
Although the kid can act as strong as a bear,
On the inside he still feels alone in this big world.
He hopes those days will come more often.
Then the world won’t seem so big.
It’s all like a dream.
That can turn into a nightmare at anytime.
