"You don't lose until you cheat."


Out of the ashes,
came a beautiful miracle.
Out of the snow,
came a chilled heart.
Out of the fire,
came searing tears.
Out of the End, comes my
Beginning.


The author's comments:
Well, almost a year ago my house burned down and my family and friends went through some very hard times. My mother got divorced from my step-dad, she got in a bad car crash, we had to move into a new house ( that i didn't care for), I learned some things I wished I hadn't known, and I lost all of my material life. My best friend helped me by giving me clothes, shoes, school stuff, and so, so much more. I am so grateful for my school, friends, family, and neighbors. Thank you so much guys! <3
