He peeks up at me, smiling
The first time I have the courage, observing
His hair blown across his forehead, swishing
The thick red lips, beckoning

I look into his changing eyes
Piercing blue yet soft and gentle
Determined yet kind and loving
Searching you yet glistening too

I smiled back, cherishing
He spoke, I felt scared yet anxious
For he wasn’t speaking to my mind
But looking into my soul

If you give up now, you'll give up later. If you give up later, what are you teaching the little ones who look up to you? Think about it... Push forward. Be proud of who you are! You are special. Never forget that!

I love it! So much imagery! You are very talented.. :)
