I am bright and smart

I wonder about the people surrounding me 

I hear silence 

I see pitch black

I want to know what is wrong and be able to help


I am bright and smart

I pretend that I know everything

I feel alone 

I touch others words

I worry about others in need of help

I cry to get heard 


I am bright and smart

I understand that life isn't perfect

I say that everything will soon be ok

I dream of happiness

I try my best to forgive and forget 

I hope for a better tomorrow 

I am bright and smart
